Earth Song

Earth Song, 24x30, Acrylic collage with natural materials and gold leaf on canvas, $1,200

Gwen Cates is a contemporary colorist who creates experimental and playful abstract paintings in acrylic, often with collage elements. The images have been inspired and grew out of earlier plein air landscapes and figurative work. Gwen calls this series of paintings Interior Monologues. Going deeper into her subconscious and the world of dreams, Gwen reveals fantasies from her imagination. She creates archetypal images and incorporates winged figures, horses and other animals in her compositions. Swatches of fabric, lace and lichen from oak trees are some of the elements that are included in the paintings.
