“To provide viewers freedom to find emotional meaning in the intangible by evoking the unconscious use of their own imagination.” — Gayle Printz
Gayle Printz is an Internationally recognized American Abstract Artist whose work is part of the Permanent Exhibit of Le Musée de Peinture de Saint-Frajou in France. Using color, rather than tangible structures, Ms. Printz creates paintings that transcend the familiar. She is famous for drawing the viewer in and inviting them to assign personal meaning and universal context by listening to the whispers of their imagination. Her paintings are known to have a magical quality; they can change completely depending upon the angle at which you gaze. As with life, the meaning in Ms. Printz’s work, depends upon the way you look at it.
Gayle Printz’s paintings have been lauded by critics and collectors of Abstract Art, Abstract Expressionism, Art-Resilience, Art Informel and Tachisme. Although she has developed a distinctively recognizable style, Ms. Printz has been compared to Jackson Pollock, Lee Krasner, Helen Frankenthaler, Hans Hofmann, and Joan Mitchell.
