GAIL POSTAL

Artist Statement: I have had two major influences on my work – old hand tinted black and white Japanese photographs and Russian Orthodox icons. I do a graphite drawing and then add gold paint and many layers of transparent oil or acrylic paint to create an icon of a contemporary “saint.”
