This painting is one in a new series through which I am exploring the relationship of shape and line in an environment of vivid color. Sometimes oppositional, sometimes harmonious, these elements are my vocabulary for discovery and exploration.  It has been an exciting period of new growth in my work.

The work is on cradled wood panel. It comes varnished and wired for hanging.  

PLEASE NOTE: The second detail image depicts this piece and three others in the series, also available on UGallery.

Getting to Know Gwen

A fascination with the division of space drives the work of Gwen Gunter. When approaching a new work, she uses both her intuition and a specific spatial vision. After creating a compositional sketch, she adds color and texture. Then she simply lets the painting guide her. Though she doesn't consider herself a huge science buff, she enjoys listening to physicists talk about quantum mechanics and string theory while she works. Fun fact: during her free time, you can usually find her taking care of the animals in her "mini ranch."
