I use the Singulart website to sell and promote my work. Through this website, I was notified that Inês Gavinho, Creative Director of GAI, selected two pieces of my work, South of Greeley and Calls for Rain, for inclusion in the Gavinho Architecture & Interiors collection.
The selected images for the GAI collection are similar in tone, color, and scale. They explore visual impairment and blindness and allow the viewer to get lost and arrive at their own conclusion or overlay their personal experiences on the work. One of the most crucial aspects of this work is the relationship it has with the viewer.
“South of Greeley”
Singulart interviewed Inês Gavinho, and Gavinho talks about the dialog between art and architecture spaces and how art elevates an architectural space.
Living with art is something I have made a priority in my life. The work I have in the home I share is collected from varied and strange places to find artworks. The artwork in our collection was found from garage sales, antique fairs, and the occasional thrift store. Though I have bought or traded with other fellow artists, it still begs the question, “What directs a person to consider an object, so important that they place it in their home and see it daily, living with a thing that enhances their life or brings comfort after a long, arduous day?”
We have a large Paul Klee (print not original) hanging in our living room area. I look at this piece and ponder over the thick black lines and childlike color palette almost every day. I see connections to other artists through this painting. I understand how this work and Klee could have been overlooked and what if art critic Alfred Kubin had overlooked and dismissed his work?
The Gavinho Architecture & Interiors collection is here.
