Ginnie Gardiner: Equivalent Palettes

by Ginnie Gardiner


Ginnie Gardiner says about the work in Equivalent Palettes: “One of the most absorbing aspects of my studio practice is the translation of the collage into an oil painting–the creation of an ‘equivalent palette’ from the collage study that is keyed to the larger scale of the canvas. The close relationships forged between the medium of collage and its translation into paint I liken to the impressionist tradition of on-site oil sketches into full studio paintings. This is as opposed to the traditional and academic trajectory where I often find the on-site sketch more compelling.”

The book includes excerpts from essays by Carter Ratcliff and Wendy Smith
