Gale Hagblom

My paintings interpret nature while considering other worldly and human responses. Because of my background as a graphic designer, I notice line, shape and colour; the meaning of symbols, and the elements they communicate.

I am interested in creating work that will have an effect beyond observation, that will develop into a meaningful conversation by engaging and lingering with the viewer.

I interpret, abstract and sublimate to unveil and explore the familiar. I employ a variety of painterly techniques that are underpinned with translucent or opaque layers of paint that reveal hints of what lies beneath. I insert expressive drawing and brush marks distinguished by highly saturated colours to animate the work.
