After working as a ceramic artist for more than twenty years creating wall sculptures and commissioned installation work, Gail Titus has been focusing more extensively on pursuing her long time interest in abstract painting. Her detailed studies of abstract painting techniques lead Titus to develop works on canvas using acrylic paint and a variety of unconventional tools and techniques. As with her ceramic work, her primary focus in painting has been on surface development.
Gail Titus works spontaneously and intuitively without regard to realistic forms, but with a focus of textures, colors, and interesting shapes. She creates artworks by applying paint to a canvas using brushes, scrapers, water bottles or other objects, working intuitively. As this process continues, certain areas of the painting will start to feel undeveloped. This is when she will methodically rework those areas until the artwork gradually feels resolved.
Her artworks have been acquired by corporations and private collectors throughout the United States, Canada, and Australia.
