About the Artist
Gina is an intuitive abstract painter creating with water-based mediums on paper and canvas. Her process journeys inward to a site of discovery, growth, challenge, and stillness as she bonds materials to surroundings, finding trust in the act and beauty in each layer. Through her meditative process, she infuses patience and adaptability into her work, welcoming new techniques, materials, relationships, and approaches as they develop in real time. She refines her process in small moments and allows the works itself to provide instantaneous feedback and modify her path with purpose and intention. Space, environment, and land transpose into Gina's dreamlike works that mingle her sense of place, vast landscapes, memories, collage, color relationships, and energy. Her ethereal paintings work to soothe the mind and create space for moments of contemplation, softness, and personal reflection. She works in fluid layers, with each revealing new energy and emotions, delving deeper into her own and our collective psyche.
