Gayle Fraas and Duncan Slade
“For a long time, we've been painting places. Places are stories told through the remnants of history and the experiences of residents. Our work combines the tools and materials of folk art, applied and fine arts. Works are informed by textile design, medieval manuscript illumination, the Hudson River School's reverence for the ideal and the graphic language of flags.
Our collaboration is for the most part conceptual. Pieces are conceived and executed by either one of us or as a team. It is the content, intent, and meaning of the work that we share. Each piece continues our visual conversation.”
