Lopez Garcia and Giacometti Also Inspired Ann Gale
Continuing directly from yesterday, Alberto Giacometti and Antonio Lopez Garcia are the other two artists Ann Gale cited as being influential in her development. The sculptor who places his subjects in motion with his control of his modeling has the spotlight on the left. A search on the "internets" and you'll find any number of other images of the people and creatures he has created to come into our lives.
Antonio Lopez Garcia, on the right, is an amazing painter whose paintings look like photographs from a distance but as you come closer to them you find his brushstrokes adding atmosphere to his scenes.
Another Ann Gale self-portrait is at the top looking towards two of the ones who influenced her.
