Isolation at Estel Gallery 

The "I" in Isolation

The "I" in Isolation
In his song "Splendid Isolation," Warren Zevon declared, "I want to live alone in the desert / I want to be like Georgia O'Keeffe." Neither Warren nor Georgia were the first--or last--artists to seek out a muse in the peaceful/perilous confines of one's own space. With Isolation, two unique painters bring their separate takes on alone-time to Estel Gallery. Canadian Deb Garlick treats her canvases with plaster, bringing an unexpected textural dimension to narratives of her favorite subject: a faceless girl in a white dress. San Fransiscan Tim Yankosky explores the notion of isolation using the image of a goldfish in a jar, evoking feelings of safety and luxury as well as imprisonment and panic.
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: April 4. Continues through April 25, 2009
