GERMAIN ART STUDIO
7866 Saddle Creek Trail
Sarasota, FL 34241
“The land – and sea based abstract acrylic paintings of Sarasota artist Gay Germain are invigorated by devices and understandings of her expressionistic antecedent, in particular Franz Kline and Willem de Kooning. They’re solid paintings that combine architectonic structure with accidental drips and textures circumscribed within a single containing shape or wash of color.”
For the past 3 years, acclaimed Sarasota artist Gay Germain battled a life threating illness. A year ago she did not know whether she would ever be able to pick up a brush again. “It’s was a scary and difficult process, but I told myself to take it one day at a time.” That day finally came when Gay built the strength back to do what she does best, creating art in her Saddle Creek Studio. As part of her comeback, Germain completed three new large bodies of work, and also launched a newly designed website.
WWW.GERMAINARTSTUDIO.COM reflects the artists mission to provide her audience with information about the work and beautiful photography. Additionally, the site was built to be fully integrated across social media platforms, and new content (paintings and sculptures) are automatically distributed and promoted through Facebook, and Twitter.
