Hang Outs... Chelsea, New York

works by American artist Gail Postal

Opening for “Iconic” is on October 18th 2012 from 6 to 8 PM. 
The exhibition continues through November 11th 2012

“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. 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.

She paints on board using graphite and oil and incorporates glitter and Swarovski crystal in some of her figures...
