Artist statement: I paint what I see, and what I cannot see. These paintings are a reverent response to the interplay of Land, Sea, and Sky on the California coast. I immerse myself in the physicality of the paint, allowing washes of color to drip, blend, spatter, and dissolve. Each painting is an adventure and a discovery.
Erin Lee Gafill: Born in Big Sur, CA in 1963, Erin Lee Gafill is an award-winning painter from a storied California family, amongst whom are the founders of Carmel by the Sea and Napenthe Restaurant in Big Sur. Her work has recently been featured in two major museum exhibitions; at the Morris Graves Museum of Art in Eureka, CA in 2022, and at the Monterey Museum of Art, Monterey, CA in 2021.
