"The shapes in this painting tell the story of being surprised by unexpected news that seems to come out of the blue," says Gwen. The organic red form is pierced by the sharp black and white structure, with the white outline possibly representing a reaction, all within a tightly closed space.
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.
