Art Issue #56

The artists that I admire tap feelings of awe that permit the viewer to experience new perspectives of being.

By GJ Gillespie

GJ Gillespie is a collage artist living in a 1928 Tudor Revival farmhouse overlooking Oak Harbor on Whidbey Island (north of Seattle). In addition to natural beauty, he is inspired by art history — especially mid century abstract expressionism. The “Northwest Mystics” who produced haunting images from this region 60 years ago are favorites.
