“ Gayle Curry is a self-taught, innovative artist not bound by convention or tradition. Her work is an eclectic mix of mediums and unique expressions of form, color, light &texture. Her paintings are represented in public, private, & corporate collections. ”
Throughout Gayle's artistic career she has worked with different media and subject matter. However, recently abstraction and mixed media with acrylic and oil have taken her down another path of discovery. The purpose of her work is to find a way to express a vision without being literal; she explores form, shape and color and work them on the canvas until she evokes emotion.
Color is a significant component, she thrives on the challenge of its subtleties and possibilities, which are limitless in how to articulate a message. To create tension is also part of her goal in a final work. Tension stirs surface and deep emotion in potential viewers and herself. She strives to combine calm and crazy, light and dark in order to construct an unexpected reaction. Other elements such as words, symbols and simple patterns reveal themselves through their look or meaning, which she then incorporates into the final intent.
