"This painting is about taking the bait and getting lost in a "box" of perceptions - a kind of falling down the rabbit hole of thinking," says Gwen. Part of an ongoing series of paintings abstractly defining the complexity and deeply layered nature of thought and memory.
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.
