From Gale Mckee


Greetings Friends and Patrons,
I appreciate the support and enthusiasm of all who have bought my paintings over the years, and would love to hear from you.! If you would like to contribute to a book project about my art.. published to coincide with my solo show, any expression will be gratefully received. What inspired you to purchase your painting? What has it added to your life? Please include anything that wish to say, including the name of your (favorite) painting. 
        

Hi Georgianne,
I would like to contribute to your project:

I first saw your work in the early 2000s at Starbuck's on Bryant St. in SF. I was IMMEDIATELY pulled intothe paintings; I could FEEL the texture, turmoil, and solitude, loneliness of each piece. I was moved.So I HAD to meet you and watch you paint. 

I followed your career for years (especially the "After the Flood" series)  and finally bought two paintings in2010, but wished I had done so earlier! They are hanging in my living room and inspire me every day

!I see/feel something new every time I look at them.
I believe it is because I am able to relate to the pieces, and yet not have everything "spelled out". There is space and a place to "dream" and add your own story. Abstraction and the figure merge in an effortless melange of texture, imperfections, and simplicity at the same time.


I wish you all the best, and look forward to your show and buying the book!
Cheers,
Gale S. McKee
