Brisbane, Queensland, Australia

 February 20 through March 20 of 2021:

"Gayle Printz: The Intangible"

      

"The Intangible (2021) is an exhibition of new paintings by American artist, Gayle Printz. Gayle's artworks negotiate through the emotional spheres of the subconscious and unconscious mind. With her enigmatic quality, this body of work urges us to find a unique meaning behind each colour and mark. ​​

These paintings allow the viewer to find emotional meaning in the intangible by evoking the unconscious use of their own imagination. By using colour and distinct brushwork as tools of expression, the work attempts to transcend the familiar. These paintings invite the viewer to assign personal meaning by listening to the inner voice. Similar to life, the meanings that are unravelled in this body of work will depend upon the viewer's perception."     

       ---Dr. Julie Rees, curator

BRUSH, FIRST, SECOND, JACK, AVERY, SHE, WALK, GOOD, METALLIC, PURPLE PLUNGE and TOGETHER were showcased.

"Artist Emerges from COVID to Paris Exhibit" 

Gayle Printz, an abstract expressionist artist, began painting in her ... home in May2020, and is now awash in the layers and textures of her intricate work.

By MARCIA CALLER JAFFE 

29 October 2020, 3:34 pm

   Fresh from her international debut, attorney Gayle Printz paints in a style compared to abstract expressionists Joan Mitchell, Hans Hofmann, Helen Frankenthaler, Lee Krasner and Jackson Pollock, known for their use of color, layering and “dripping."

 Inspired to bring beauty back into her world, Printz began painting during the COVID-19 crisis. In July, she submitted two paintings, “Pond” and “First,” to Musée de Peinture de Saint-Frajou in france for entry in the juried International Art Resilience Exhibition.

 The museum stated the exhibition’s purpose and selection of artwork was “to present works characterizing the rigor in a search for artistic quality, creativity and technical mastery.” Both paintings Printz submitted were accepted and were exhibited for a month in Salon 6 of the museum. The online presentation remains in the museum’s permanent archives...

 Printz, formerly with Powell, Goldstein, Frazer & Murphy, said, “Painting brought me back to life during isolation. It never even occurred to me to paint before May. When something calls to me, I tend to answer with determination. Even I was surprised when, three months later, I had two paintings on display in Paris."

 Interior designer Bridgette Boylan also expressed amazement. “When Gayle began painting, it was unbelievable that it all came so naturally to her. Every time I look at her paintings, I notice something I hadn’t seen before. She knows how to combine beauty with a deeper meaning, which is left to the viewer to assign based on their own imagination and experiences. She doesn’t tell you what you should be thinking."

 Printz often paints outside by her idyllic pool, reminiscent of a European villa, with her golden retriever, Harley, nearby. Take the tour.

Jaffe: Share your technique.

 

Printz: I use color, three-dimensionality and distinct brushwork, rather than tangible structures, as tools of expression. While inviting the spectator to establish an intimate connection with my work, I try to challenge them to search for personal meaning through a subconscious journey.   

   Using acrylic on canvas, I layer colors and textures, including sand, gels, tar, glass beads, metallics, glazes, and crackling. From different angles, viewers will see different things in the same painting: faces, animals, landscapes and even unclothed bodies. I leave it to them to decide and, because of that, I tend to keep my titles nondescript: “Totem,” “Bird,” “Iridescence,” “Control,” “Blur,” “Picnic,” “Metallic,” “Second,” for example. Prices range from $700 to $19,900.

Jaffe: How did you discover the international exhibition?

Printz: While investigating how to archive my collection, I noticed a “call for artists” requesting applications to enter the juried International Art-Resilience Exhibition [Competition]. Thinking the exhibition was about resilience during COVID, I sent two photographs of my work. The next day, I was informed both pieces were accepted and would be on exhibit for a month at the museum and online.

   As it turned out, the exhibition was not related to COVID at all. Art Resilience is an established international art movement, representing mastery of the synchronicity between beauty and universal meaning. Worldwide, only 69 artists, including eight American painters, were selected to present their work. So, for me, this whole experience can only be described as “serendipitous."

Jaffe: Have you continued the relationship?

Printz: Yes. I currently work with Ksenia Milicevic, founder of Musée de Peinture de Saint-Frajou and [co-founder of] the international Art-Resilience movement. Ksenia, a world-famous artist, took me under her wing and has become my mentor. Though our styles differ, I send her photographs of works-in-progress, and Ksenia gives me detailed technical direction. The time she has spent critiquing my work has already taught me how to invite the viewer into the painting and keep them there. She’s incredibly attentive; we communicate several times a day. Her instruction has been invaluable...

Jaffe: What’s next?

Printz: I will continue painting and hope to share the beauty. I have over 30 paintings here. Since mid-August, I sold several other pieces privately to collectors and another eight through my website at www.GaylePrintz.com

   Though I have also been answering emails from museums, including Atlanta’s High Museum and D.C.’s National Gallery of Art, which have requested photographs to consider for their permanent exhibits, in reality, I paint all the time when I’m home. And, since May, I’ve been home an awful lot!

"As a designer, I am surrounded by fine art on a daily basis. When Gayle began painting this May, I was awestruck. Gayle painted as though she had been painting her entire life. It was unbelievable to me that it all came so naturally to her. Gayle’s paintings draw you into a world where you can stay for hours. Every time I look at a painting, I notice something I hadn’t seen before. 

Gayle naturally knows how to combine beauty with a deeper meaning. That meaning is left to the viewer to assign based on their own imagination and personal experiences. You don’t sit there and wonder what she’s trying to convey. You sit there and think of what the work means to you. It’s much less presumptuous when you study the work of an artist who doesn’t tell you what you should be thinking. And her paintings are so engaging that you can actually look at one of her pieces for hours.

These are paintings a collector would be lucky to get their hands on. They are much more valuable than their cost suggests.  I know there are some buyers who already recognize this as they are actually paying more for her painting than she’s asking—simply to ensure they aren’t outbid. 

Gayle is a very talented woman. Her choices, distribution and overall use of color is consistently effective and I find her application of paint is varied and interesting. Her individual brushwork is distinct, making the universal messages contained in the work easier to “read.” 

Her work is simply so imaginative that, when she told me she applied to an international art competition, I felt sure her work would be selected for the Paris Museum exhibition. Did you know that Gayle is one of only SEVEN American artists chosen to exhibit their work in Paris? And, not one piece, but two of her paintings were accepted within hours of their submission. I told her I was not the least bit surprised the museum was going to exhibit her work for a month. But I was surprised when I went to the website and noticed that, in all, only about 65 artists were chosen worldwide. 

With my exposure to art, I always look to established artists for the sake of comparison. Gayle’s work falls into the category of the Abstract Expressionists. Among them, Gayle’s paintings immediately bring to mind the paintings of Lee Krasner, Helen Frankenthaler, Joan Mitchell, and of course, Jackson Pollock. With one exception--whereas there are many who consider Jackson Pollock’s work to be random and disorganized, Gayle’s paintings can only be considered true artwork. 

Her works are a rare find. Any collector would be fortunate to add her paintings to their collection.
