Ann Gale Cites Lucian Freud
It was no surprise to me to read that Ann Gale credits three artists as influencing her work – Lopez Garcia, Alberto Giacometti and Lucian Freud. Freud's work has a similar effect, the subject is anchored to the painting but you very much feel that there you are sharing the same environment. It must have to do with the mark that each painter leaves creating light and movement. See if you can see the influences Sigmund Freud's grandson has had on Gale's work in these two self-portraits.
