GDCA Gallery proudly announces our WORLD ART DAY 2024 Group Exhibition:  "UNTAMED".

A garden is a bed of earth, raw, offering nothing to the naked eye – relying only on what ‘IS’ not on what ‘MAY BE’. Without Hope, without Faith, without Art…without planting a garden for humanity… life is hard. Growth is painful, but possible, and in the end our gardens are most fruitful and exciting when they are UNTAMED. Free to Be. Free to Grow. Free to Become. 

Featuring IAA-USA Member Artists: A.S. Ashley, Susanne Belcher, Richard Bell, Marlene Capell, Carol Cirillo Stanley, AJ Hollywood, Suki Kuss, Kathe Madrigal, Noah James Saunders, Bill Sherwood, Stephen Schubert, Linda Stelling & Christina Ilene Thomas.

Painting - Figurative and Abstract, Mixed Media Collage, Photography and Digital Collage.

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

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 or catch 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 ink line drawings done of gentle fields to bring the orchards home along with photographs taken of the agricultural fields in Ventura. The two digital photo collages on Acrylic were captures of glory in my own garden and are part of a series entitled “Secrets in the Garden”. Excited by glitches appearing while watching a movie on TV, I combined them with my floral images to present a semi-abstract, delicate architectural tone to the work. Reflecting on all the pieces in this series, I defer to the imagination of the viewer to be swept away by nature’s gifts.”

RICHARD BELL 

"John Coltrane, and Albert Einstein, embody the fascination I have with the endless oscillation of the universe. What starts out as hope soon becomes manipulated into a dialectic of power, leaving only a sense of dread and the inevitability of a new synthesis.
As temporal phenomena become frozen through diligent and repetitive practice, the viewer is left with a testament to the limits of our existence, as reflected in the ecstasy and the agony of our reality."

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.

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

SUKI

“Art is not art. Art is life”. SK

"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."

“The area I am currently exploring is AI, virtual/augmented reality, and how the next generations might experience these technologies in the future. As technology advances, they might not be able to tell what is real and what is not. It’s already happening but, will they prefer it? These paintings open a dialog of thought-provoking questions having to do with ethics and individual preference.” - Kathe Madrigal

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.”

STEPHEN SCHUBERT

“Day Awakens” (green Flash). I frequently went to Carmel,CA. to deliver my art to a gallery. Making new friends there I was repeatedly invited to walk down Ocean Ave to watch the sun drop below the horizon. A tradition which included wine drinking and cheering when the “green flash” was seen....an optical illusion that appears on a water horizon at sunrise and sunset that truly looks like a green flash....
“Tranquility in Blue” is a play with my love of blue...soothing no doubt but looking more closely, you see two separate water and sky scenes one gently placed upon the other softened by the dusky pinks. A little surreal...two realities at once....
“The Clearing” has stormy elements as well as a generous amount of optimism. The storm always clears, notice the storm clouds appearing to be drawn up back into the atmosphere from where they came with the drip lines...revealing a fiery warmth breaking the horizon line below....
“Two Blue Windows”. Yes, it feels Rothkoey but that was not in my mind at all. I just wanted large enveloping color fields that felt like windows in and of themselves. To pluck that idea I added the two, blue, tiny windows which are really the way in which so many new visions are realized in our thinking, emotions and ways of being, small to start and they grow from there...." - Stephen Schubert

" I symbolize my profound connection to Mother Earth through the garden, a space of freedom and inspiration where fantasy thrives, fueling my imagination. 

The mother archetype, a constant presence in my work, embodies my upbringing's roots. Surrounded by nature in the Midwest, I developed an affinity for intense color, influencing all aspects of my work.

My work also investigates color, satisfying a deep-rooted curiosity and need for expression. Ultimately, it reflects the enduring influence of the maternal in nature and human experience.”

CHRISTINA ILENE THOMAS

“Painting is a spiritual practice for me, and it has opened my heart and my world to a beautiful expansiveness. I allow my paintings to evolve through me and develop them by following my intuition/instincts. It is as though I am having a conversation with the canvas, a back-and-forth continual communication as I feel my way along to flesh it out. Later, when the workis completed, Iam sosurprised that I did it! I feel like it happened all by itself somehow. I create the titles after a piece is finished. As Matisse said, “Not things, but the essence of things.” I hope that my paintings will be felt and submitted to. There is no need for interpretation, just feel and immerse yourself in it." - CIT

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."

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."

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."

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, 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.

KATHE MADRIGAL

"The inspiration of this work came from a study I was doing about collaborative mark making. This series of large scale, works on paper was a result of viewing different applications of charcoal, and how they ultimately all merged as one unified drawing. It was finished with thin applications of oil paint and ground.“ - Kathe Madrigal
