Title: “OIL PAINTINGS BY GARY FAIR”
Growing up in Northern California, and seeing sailboats on San Francisco Bay, formed for Gary an indelible sense of wonder in the power of the wind. Being self taught requires Gary to work harder at seeing, and capturing the image he feels. His work comes from his pure love for the light and shadow, and the use of real color, seen in and throughout where we live. Self taught artists paint from within, first, without instruction or the confines of rules and structures imposed by outside ideas and techniques. Their art is a part of them and involves a freedom that cannot be taught, but can only be experienced. With Gary’s art, one experiences his expression of moment and image.
In Gary’s words: “Through my paintings, I try to capture the pleasure it is to live today, here and now. Everything around us, whether it’s sailing on the bay, or viewing a flower garden, you can be there through my art.”
