Gabrielle Garland Art Exhibit Opens Saturday in Chicago

Gabrielle Garland is a prolific New York-based artist whose main focus right now is on homes and dwelling spaces. Her little homes are whimsical and alive. Here is what The Hughes Gallery in Australia wrote about her:

"…Focusing on areas of human habitation, Garland does not seek to directly depict these spaces, but rather to communicate the ways we experience place. To that end she twists the rules of perspective to better suit the shift in focus and vantage point that occurs when we are in a room or outside a building. Memory is integral to the process. Garland takes photographs to remind her of the experience of a space and when translating them to drawings she combines alternative perspectives from different photographs to create 'a kind of virtual collage allowing many different systems of order to exist in a single piece.…'"

 There is a wonderful body of her work at http://gabriellegarland.org/ and an exhibit opening in Chicago on July 22nd (tomorrow): http://www.corbettvsdempsey.com/2016/06/24/gabrielle-garland-2/

I like this work. Looked at website, and nice too.

For some reason, reminds me of
some of Van Gogh's work,
"The Bedroom"
