About "Contemplation II"

the animals I paint are almost exclusively drawn
directly from wildlife photography. Like many South Africans I have personally not experienced wildlife in “natural environments”
and because of the popularity of eco-tourism African wildlife has become an exclusive recreational experience. The world we
inhabit has become more manipulated and market orientated and to me it seems that natural environments have become more
of an exception than a rule. For this reason I have chosen to separate the subjects in some way from their natural environment
making them more of a decorative element than a true representation of natural law. In some works the boldness of the stylization makes the animal almost an icon inhabiting a new urban environment.

About Gary

Gary Frier

"I believe that making art is a compulsive act of self expression that can only be realized through the collaborative act of creating and experiencing. Creating art for me is about constantly reflecting on my place in the reality. Using art to express a emotional and intellectual and tactile value, discovering how to distill and interpret my interaction with what surrounds me and documenting that personal relationship.
