On the occasion of being part of present Halfway to Sanity group show and upcoming solo show both at the new The Pit LA space, we take a look in today's A Portfolio at Gabrielle Garland. The abstracted, loose, distorted paintings of architecture really caught our eye at the openning of Sanity last week, and wanted to showcase more here today. 

Gabrielle Garland (b. 1968) is a painter based in New York. Garland received her BFA from The Art Institute of Chicago and her MFA from the University of Chicago. Over the last decade she has been working on a series of images based in, on, and around architecture, portraits of apartments and houses featuring uniquely American interiors and exteriors.  These paintings utilize a wide range of mark-making devices and an elastic perspective that draws out the specific personality of each domicile.  Her work has been shown in solo exhibitions at Taymour Grahne Projects, London, UK (2022); Corbett vs. Dempsey, Chicago, IL (2020); and group shows at DeVos Art Museum, Marquette, MI (2022); 1969 Gallery, New York, NY (2020);  Campbell Project Space, Sydney Australia (2018) amongst others. Garland has been featured in Make Literary Magazine (2014), Newcity Art (2013), and Chicago Art Review (2011). She is represented by Corbett vs. Dempsey and The Pit.
