Gina Falcone Skelton is a painter living in Baltimore, MD. Working primarily in oil on canvas, she employs both figurative and landscape imagery in a nonliteral approach to painting. Her latest work represents a new direction with pieces made in a new medium: torn paper on paper. The newest, Paper Paintings II, incorporate marks made by the artist’s hand. Using literal and abstract imagery as iconic references to shared ideas, the work explores the human drive to create a narrative that reveals the profound in the ordinary, the connectedness between the unconnected, the hidden meaning of life.
