GDCA Gallery proudly announces our MAY 2024 Group Exhibition:  "DAYDREAM".

"On a sunny brae alone I lay One summer afternoon; It was the marriage-time of May With her young lover, June... So, resting on a heathy bank, I took my heart to me; And we together sadly sank Into a reverie... Methought, the very breath I breathed Was full of sparks divine, And all my heather-couch was wreathed By that celestial shine! The music ceased; the noonday dream, Like dream of night, withdrew; But Fancy, still, will sometimes deem Her fond creation true." - Excerpts from "A Daydream" by Emily Bronte

SUSANNE BELCHER

“This new series was inspired by my love of nature, fruit bearing trees and floral garden bouquets that surround us every day. We may stop to reflect on the beauty of Spring, daydream a little while catching a sweet fragrance on the breeze and wonder from whence it comes. The prints on paper were rendered originally for the Annual Modesto Almond Festival in California. Found images of the glorious trees were combined with some of my pen and ink drawings done of gentle fields and rambling fences to bring the orchards home along with photographs taken of the agricultural fields in Ventura. Reflecting on each piece in this series, I defer to the imagination of the viewer to be swept away by nature’s gifts.” – Susanne Belcher

RICHARD BELL 

"My art is an introspective exploration of the complexities of the human form, rooted in the eternal shades of gray, white, and black. I invite the viewer to immerse themselves in the nuanced layers of my creations, revealing the duality of light and dark, beauty and devastation. My work is a sublime reflection of the human experience, transcending the confines of color and illuminating the universal truths that unite us all."

ROBIN CHAPPELL

Always looking for the road less traveled, Robin hasn't been content to tread the well worn ruts of centuries old images. He also hasn't wanted to pursue the What's New' just because it is ‘outre’ stretching the boundaries. Instead he developed a medium and style that, while borrowing techniques which are both traditional as well as timeless, were treading new ground and creating images which are both naturalistic as well as impressionistic.

He came upon the medium of China Markers as if by accident (although he does not believe in ‘accidents’). After using ordinary Crayola Crayons (and having been doing pencil and pen and ink crosshatch — in the Old Masters style), he sought out a more opaque medium that had the same quality of colors and luminosity. Spending several years working on white paper, he began to use black or darkly grounded paper (and masonite or canvas), in order to get the darkest darks and work towards the Light.

For he sees Light (and often hidden light sources) as (are) used as a metaphor for Spirit, where we see the effect of the Infinite on the world but not directly the Source. His work strives to find that Light and seeks to bring changes in perception because of it, en-light-ening (using his Art) with sometimes often not seen light and images. His aim is to shift consciousness as to what is all around us.

Even in the darkest Night, there is always some source of Light.

KAREN HANSEN

"Years ago my painting practice melded with my meditation so that the very act of painting has become my meditation. As I work, I ease into a clear, quiet space in my mind. The paintings then evolve through intuition, improvisation, experimentation and revision. I seek radiance, nuance, depth, elegance and mystery in each piece. Their subtle complexity is created by layering transparent and translucent veils of color. The results are lyrical and luminous atmospheric abstractions. They are reflections of the rhythms and quiet mysteries of our lives."

CAROL CIRILLO STANLEY

Each piece in this portfolio was created to examine the unique personality and characteristics of the subject. Every candidate presented itself to me in a very unsuspecting manner, not searching, just appearing. Once I noticed the often-hidden prospect, there was no way to go but forward! After obtaining the model release, I would ask that they pose in studio to which they agreed. It was there that their true selves began to unfold.." - CCS

NOAH JAMES SAUNDERS

A New Series Of Wire Portraits and Their Inspiration

In spring of 2022 I completed En Vie - a wire portrait eight feet by six feet; the largest, most complex sculpture I have ever created. Looking into En Vie’s eyes, I could only think, what next? What could possibly come after this?

Creatively exhausted, I spent weeks in my studio looking around the space. Finding a postcard from an art show I did twenty years earlier, I began to ponder the trajectory of my life with wire. I could remember how I felt as a young artist - that insatiable desire to create - a desire so stifled by fear. I remembered a series of sculptures I had then so wished to create, and the fear that stopped me from fulfilling this desire.

I set the card down, and with a raised eyebrow, I asked my younger and my present self: Is it not possible now?

Looking back into the eyes of En Vie, I understood. En Vie worked so well because I had discovered the power that came with marrying the size of a wire portrait to a specific gauge or thickness of wire - thin enough to allow me to infuse the face with emotion, not so thin as to bend under its own weight. Twenty years ago I worked exclusively with 18 gauge wire, no matter the size of the portrait. I had seen portrait after portrait fail from trying to force a line that was too thick to hold the delicate emotions I so wanted to convey. This simple insight fully opened my creative universe.

I began to gather images of models but felt something was missing. If this was to be a series, I realized I needed an emotional well from which to draw, not simply images. I needed a story arc to unify the series.

Turns out that the emotional well I needed was in my mailbox! My friend and poet Marc Zegans had mailed me his latest book Lyon Street - a book of poems about coming of age in San Francisco in the ‘70’s. A book in which his wiser self speaks with his younger self. It could not have been a more perfect inspiration!

As I read Marc’s verse, certain words really spoke to me - 'as I catch and throw him to the salt'... 'tonight, I turn and remember'... 'I ignore him and break'... 'a thin line of love tethering you to shore'... ‘no plans of moving on. You look out’

I was amazed at how easy it was to marry Zegans’s poetic lines to models I keep in my files. Each stanza that moved me had its own precise set of needs. Some required only a face staring out. Others wanted more, an arm, even a tattoo to round out the meaning embodied in the chosen string of words. Over the next twelve months my studio began to fill with diverse personalities. The wire portrait series, that I had dreamed up in my youth, was coming to life. After much meditation I named this series: “Wire and Shadow - Portraits of Poems.”

CHRISTINA ILENE THOMAS

“Expansiveness, heart-centered generosity, spirituality, the inexpressible mystery of life, the paradoxical sense of joy and sadness. I hope that my work will elicit a range of emotions in the viewer, to touch or soften people’s lives in some way, no matter how small. My paintings change moods, just as we all do and as nature does. My intuitive, sensitive process takes time to fully express what the painting wishes to be, as I contemplate and listen to each piece. My landscapes are sometimes invitations to stillness and meditation, sometimes expressions of joy, sometimes of drama and mood. I create my titles in hopes that each piece will be further enhanced, the mood, the feeling of it. To me, the titles are just as important as the painting itself." - CIT

artist statement
(an apology)

I apologize.
I apologize for all the artist statements you have suffered through, and all the ART that is supposed to resemble those statements.

I apologize for anyone having to read this, or any artist’s statement because the exhibit they are attending and/or viewing is so obscure it leaves them no choice.
I apologize for the written words needed to describe the purpose, form, and aesthetic value of a visual medium.
I apologize for the galleries that no longer care what anyone thinks or feels other than to confuse you into believing everything they do and represent is relevant and significant.
I apologize for the horrific schlepping required to get to the galleries and exhibits around town. And the parking, THE PARKING! (I am so sorry…)
Finally I apologize for my artwork, all of it, and I’m grateful for you bothering to give my work any time or consideration. I am willing to make every effort to help you navigate your way through it if necessary; if not,
I apologize.

Sincerely,
A.S. Ashley

MARLENE CAPELL

These paintings start with the image of a portal which is the dominant motif. They often evolve over a period of several years. I may paint over old paintings leaving some parts exposed because it goes with my attitude towards life; not to obscure what has gone before. This painting process is one of covering, scraping and redrawing in order to challenge the existing state of the work as multiple layers are built up and then partially obscured. This leaves evidence of what went before in the process of creating a rich and textured surface. I believe our lives are a process of building one experience upon another. As many of these paintings are painted over previous ones, revealing the history of themselves, they become a metaphor for growth and evolution.

"My love of Japanese art and culture started a thirty-year journey of exploration of the kimono. Silky textures, clean lines and dramatic form resonated deeply in me.

My very first pieces were created in dichroic glass. Throughout the years I continued this aesthetic with paper, paint and pen.

I explored other media and themes, but always came back to the kimono.

To me, it represents courage, beauty and feminine strength."

AJ HOLLYWOOD

"I firmly believe that art has the power to transform the world and minds into something universally loved and appreciated, experienced through one's own lens.

At the tender age of three, I embarked on a lifelong love affair with art and music, plunging headlong into various forms of artistic expression.

My creative journey ventured into sound and instruments, composing music, and exploring philosophy and writing. Simultaneously, I threw myself into the world of visual art, experimenting with drawing, pastels, oils, acrylics, and other painting styles, crafting my artistic voice through the integration of my passion for graffiti art, mixed media, animation, found objects, contemporary artistic influences, spiritual symbolism, as well as the essence of my neighborhood.

No matter the medium of expression, At its core, my art has always been about storytelling, and now more than ever, my works convey profound symbolic messages. The connection viewers forge with my art defines the personalized message meant for them on their unique life journeys."

JANET MCCARTY


"These were completely unplanned images, launched one day covering old canvas using a gifted jarful of paint - what I thought to be the ugliest paint color I had ever seen. I thought I was making an under painting, making broad moves without thought. Suddenly, I realized it was forming something lovely, It was forming a dream.

After years of events that defied explanation, I've grown most appreciative of dreams:

that delicious loss of logic, the un-mappable sense of things ancient and yet flimsy. I may have expected to paint a documentary, but instead it painted itself in metaphoric schools of fish, clouds and the sounds of foreign words.

Each of these pieces is covering a previous painting. As much as painting is a method to reveal the heart of the painter, the old works no longer spoke a truth I needed to release. But they did form a history, a layer of being, upon which new dream truth can rest - each needing the other. Foundation and memory plus whim and surrender, my favorite point from which to paint. The paintings consider architecture, home, place and loss of place. They consider flight and being airborne, they experience confusion and certainty, they float through space and time without attachment to either."

TERI DRYDEN

"With an emphasis on process I create textured surfaces by responding to the changes in the picture as I explore and interact with my materials. Moving between intuition and logic, chaos and order, I reunite and record fragments of thoughts, feelings and memories. By creating an ephemeral path between internal experiences and external encounters, I ask: Who am I? Who are we?"

DAVE GRAHAM

"Each painting is a mirror of nature which I have been blessed to have spent my life studying with all of its astounding mix of patterns and colors. I have also noticed that any time I have approached a canvas with a set idea in mind, it inevitably gets thrown out as the piece takes on a life of its own and evolves into something far more interesting than any ideas I may have had to begin with. This approach for me means letting go of my ego and simply being true to the painting as it is evolving and to myself as an artist, another reason I only sign my paintings on the back.

I began painting in a Monastery in Ireland, at a time when I believed that this was the life I was meant to live, guided by a deeply spiritual monk who was able to convince me despite my own doubts and insecurities, that artistically, I had a gift which I was obliged to pursue.

He was and is the only Art teacher I have ever known."

JESSIE ZAYLIA

"My “aerials” series is meant to invite the viewer to look “through” the haze and see the mess behind/below. I think it’s fairly comforting to live in a haze, but it doesn’t get rid of the inequalities, pain, anxiety, or harm of our world… of reality. And it’s a privileged position to be able to live in a haze to begin with.
This series is an invitation to enjoy beauty without ignoring the plight of any being affected by human-caused harm.

With the three pieces on the right, I “framed” the artwork with finger-crocheted hot pink masonry rope. It gives a glow to the outer edges, which is really cool looking. I intend for this concept in and of itself to obfuscate gender."

CAROL CIRILLO STANLEY

Papier Couture

Carol Cirillo Stanley, Photographer


"I love fashion, I love to explore what people wear and how they create a look that works for them. Some years ago, I created a book called “LA Streetstyle”, featuring the incredible fashion found in DTLA. Subjects that exhibited a certain flair in their dress or manner led me to many amazing people which reinforced my belief that fashion is all about creativity!

In this portfolio, my inner fashionista guided me to make clothing my vehicle of expression. I yearned to find a way to create a wardrobe of variety, elegance, flair, each piece unique.

With watercolors, the sketch pencil and pad, and camera I began to create the couture that I visualized. Combining the three mediums allowed me to use my imagination to create eachone-of-a-kindpiece. My imagination was triggered by reading Vogue magazine, flowers, design, and current fashion. When inspiration struck, I would spend hours drawing, painting often incorporating live flowers into the piece. I visualized each as a limited-edition watercolor print. The process involved the initial sketch, followed by watercolor paints to capture the colors in the design, then a final photograph. After the photograph, depending on the couture, I would then paint using photoshop. Finally, I would print the piece on archival watercolor paper to produce the finished piece.

The portfolio has developed into a 25 piece collection which continues to grow.

Each piece is a limited-edition print."

MAUREEN HALDEMAN

Paysages du Ciel (Cloudscapes)

Seeking a respite from the relentless pace of modern life and the concrete landscapes of urbanity, I have always found comfort and inspiration in the boundless expanse and ethereal beauty of the sky. To me, the sky possesses a unique magic, one capable of soothing the soul and rekindling the spirit. A symphony of light and shadow dances across the expanse of mother nature’s canvas; a spectrum of tones and hues are found in the transitions between dawn, dusk and nighttime, interpreting an ever-shifting tapestry of moods, colors and textures, all created by nature.

Through my skyscapes I endeavor to forge a connection between our artificial surroundings and the transcendent beauty of nature. Many of my most contemplative images capture the essence of the sky. Each image tells a story of constancy intertwined with perpetual change, serving as a reminder of the profound therapeutic potential inherent in the natural world, particularly in the limitless expanse above.

My photographs celebrate the sky's soothing influence and acknowledge its power to heal, inspire, and restore balance and harmony and balance in our lives - a soothing balm for the human spirit, offering solace and rejuvenation to those who pause to gaze up and contemplate its wonders.
