Back from my mini-blogging break here we go with the G's...
G is for Amy Greenan
Via lj I discovered her art,(more of which can be seen on her flickr pages:over here) I love the way Amy paints herself, her use of oil paint is inspiring to me as a person who hasn't touched oil paints for years. And there's no getting away from the fact that it's a distinct possibility that me and Amy share the exact shame body, she's just a bit more comfortable showing it off than I am. Here's her bio on Stu-art and her myspace.
G is for Gabrielle Gamboa
G is for Gunilla Jähnichen
I know I probably say this about every show at the gallery, but this show was definately one of the best ever. The quality of Gunilla's painting is so good, and the composition of her paintings is really strong. I love how when her show was on people were slightly scared to come into the gallery! I wish now that I had been able to buy one of the canvases as I kick myself over not splurging on one on a nearly daily basis. I'm lucky though because Gunilla and her family stayed at my house for a few days whilst hanging the show and as a gift I was given one of her drawings in a nice frame.
I'm pretty sure Gunilla is someone to keep your eyes peeled for- she has recently shown in Chicago, Frankfurt and as part of Art Cologne, where she lives.
