Hayley Gaberlavage

Artist Statement Submitted 2014

In my paintings I contemporize the out-dated. A self-proclaimed vagabond of the Deep South, My sentiment for bygone attitudes depicts the vibrant slow-pace of Southern afternoons. My recent collection of figurative paintings, capture the complexity and vitality of the American South and the characters that live in New Orleans. Preferring turquoise blues, olive greens, muted tones and unfinished background surfaces, My technique allows time into the work, the acknowledgment of memory, which is imperfect, always unfinished, and congruous to the retro aesthetic and mood.
