Here is a sneak peak at a few of the pieces!
Gannon typically paints large-scale figurative pieces in a loose style with a refreshingly raw quality to them. She specializes in gesture portraits that capture the essence of her subjects in a fluid but stylized manner. In Pre-date Ritual, the powerful use of line and shape complements the feminine subject matter and brings a sense of strength to the woman in the painting. Pre-date Ritual is a 36″ x 48″ charcoal and acrylic on canvas.
The photographs from Bhutan were the results from a trip in 2008. The series was a beautiful documentary of this isolated country in the Himalayas, full of colors and happiness. While the focus was always on the people, it also showed a way of life that is so different from the western world, and the amount of happiness that came from such a radically different system. The series has been exhibited in galleries on the West Coast, and some licensed by major companies.
Teri is fascinated by the subtleness of things and aims to capture texture and light, creating movement. Her 36″x 48″abstract recycled metal collage Rectangular Silver on Silver caputures this subtleness of movement.
