The urgency to stop climate change grows by the day.
YOU are the solution – YOU are the cavalry that will save the day
YOU will get Congress to act
Gale’s latests works, “Hidden Wonders,” portray the exquisite details of mollusk patterns and textures. The paintings provide but a snapshot of the beauty that we stand to lose if we do not act now to save the treasures of the deep seas. Climate change is a crisis that calls for immediate action, yet somehow we fail to see the present ramifications, insisting that this phenomenon only creates a future risk. Some indicators of climate change are not visible to the naked eye, yet if we open our eyes and look a little deeper, we can see the havoc that climate change has already wreaked on so much of nature.
I only hope, with my paintbrush and my voice, that I may force people to take notice of this crisis and understand the urgency for action.

Two of my paintings from "Shattered Illusions" will be exhibited.
The whole can always be broken up into its component parts in order to come to a deeper understanding. Just like white light; the rainbow is evidence of our inability to solely trust our naked eye.
It is through destruction and evolution of our fantasies that the truth of life emerges.
The Shattered Illusions series infuses color and texture to create a twinkling gem-like effect. Repetitive patterns generate a variety of enigmas.
This whimsical expression manifests the relationship of how colors dance with each other. We are their audience.
This paradoxical creation of an illusion and matrix of light reflections mixed with living and industrial materials proposes challenge on how our mind interacts with its stimulus. By playing with the elements of light, we create distortions fostering new perspectives to question our traditional way of evaluating what we see. Forbidden and closed off, shows the way people approach reality can be narrow and limiting therefore we have to redirect ourselves to see the truth through interaction. By looking into this structure, one can see an array of colors and a kaleidoscope of imagery depending on the angle of the viewer, yet all these perceptions can be unified into a shared view of a collective consciousness, not unlike the world we live in.
These little universes hold a miniature landscape consisting of organic materials and treasured souvenirs, which creates an enchanted environment. The transparency of the glass walls enables the viewer to see the many layers of the environment, interactions with the elements and their dance with each other.
I experience satisfaction while nurturing my creations as they fulfill their destiny.
Mother nature provides for me a serene escape into the natural life, which has the healing power to soothe my mind and nourish my soul. This Zen promotes a more altruistic environment contrasting with the egotism that my surroundings typically demand. I hope to make people aware of the many benefits of bamboo and the notion that we can preserve our natural world through the use of this glorious plant. Ushering people into this atmosphere, I hope to share the mystique beauty of a bamboo forest.
