Gala Bent
SHOWS The Doodling Show,End of the World
Gala Bent is a drawing-centric painter, working most often on paper, but also on walls in site-specific spaces and in animation. In her gouache-colored drawings, one thing becomes another, and borders are uncertain. The result is a fertile, cataclysmic landscape where constructed elements and organic patterns of flow both collide and mesh, often angling toward abstraction. Her most recent series, O Mountain, takes the singular form of a mountain as its focus. These forms become sentient characters, heaving their masses into sighs and tears. Gala was born near Detroit, raised in Northern Indiana, schooled in Buffalo, and now lives in Seattle with her husband, fellow artist Zack Bent, and three young sons. Upcoming exhibitions include G.Gibson Gallery (Seattle) and Ampersand International (San Francisco). Gala was selected to be a Jordan Schnitzer Printmaking resident this October at the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology in Oregon. See and read more at www.ggibsongallery.com
