Chicago based artist Gail Potocki applies the stylings of late 19th and 21st century masters in her modern Symbolist oil paintings. Some of her favorite painters influence her more in mood than technique, such as the elegance in portraits by Anthony Van Dyck, or the anxiety in Edward Munch's work. Potocki's emotionally charged subjects represent the physical form of her subconscious explorations and environmental concerns. For her latest portrait series, "Freaks", Potocki portrays actual carnival sideshow performers who had real deformities, now showing at Century Guild in Culver City, CA.
