This fall Tazza Gallery presents “Iconic,” works by American artist Gail Postal. The exhibition is open now through November 11th at Tazza Gallery in Chelsea. NYC
“Iconic” is a series of paintings in multimedia of what the artist calls “Contemporary Saints.” Inspired by ancient Orthodox paintings during a visit to Russia, Gail Postal paints contemporary people and sets them in bright, golden backgrounds. She paints on board using graphite and oil and incorporates glitter and Swarovski crystal in some of her figures. Gail believes that every individual is a gift and that everyone deserves the same level of respect and veneration that is given to traditional saints and religious icons.
Tazza Gallery is located at 547 W 27th St, New York, NY 10001.
