Virtual Reality tour of Abstract Artist Gary Oakley's studio

Inspired by the colors of New Mexico, Gary’s Color Plane Series boils the energy of landscapes down to their essential elements leaving the viewer the ability to interpret and imagine. Done on a square format with many layers of paint, pigment and mediums his pieces have a remarkable depth which makes them always interesting to look at. One of his “secrets” is listening to complicated music while painting. This not only inspires depth in imagery, it also evokes a kinetic experience. Like a fencer, his painting technique involves dancing, jiving, and jibing, with lots of physical energy. It is really pretty ridiculous. Toss in some diverse textures, unorthodox painting tools and a few carefully nuanced colors and voila!, you have what his collectors describe as: fresh, deep, peaceful, energetic, spiritual and magical. Unorthodox indeed, but those are some awesome words eh?
