MEGAN GIBBONS:
BEYOND THE NARRATIVE
Alice Gallery
NOV 18, 2016 - JAN 13, 2017

Please join us for Gallery Stroll Dec 26-9pm

Painting primarily with oil based artist mediums and house paints, Gibbons uses mid to large size canvases, working and reworking, the application of thick layers. The subsequent scraping away is of significant importance to the process. While the figurative nature of the work summons a desire to create a story, Gibbons hopes the viewer will create their own narrative and relate to the work on a personal level. Gibbons says, “I have always gravitated toward figurative painting. I love to watch people, especially when they are introspective and unaware of being observed. Their gestures and mannerisms are fascinating to me.” Gibbons often works with vintage photographs describing them as an imprint of the past or lost and forgotten memories that have a compelling power to tell stories while opening the door to interpretation. "The figures and landscapes evolve into new personas and atmospheres which are heavily layered and abstracted, much like our own memories," explains Gibbons.
