Frame of Mind


2020, 30" x 24" (76.2 x 60.96 cm), Acrylic and spray paint on Italian linen

This is a painting Gabriela Gil made after starting her mentorship with the New York artist, Jill Nathanson, in early 2020. The piece explores the use of the borders to guide the eye around a painting, and the effect of translucency between layers depending on how the painting is applied.
