"At the end of my creative process, I always question myself: is this painting about the indoors or the outdoors? …then, I let each individual decide."
Fee Gunkel’s art, mostly abstract, is a visual language using basic elements such as shape, form, line, color, and light. She is creating compositions inspired by the geometrical and mathematical structures that already exist in nature and architecture, yet a departure from reality.
Fee's materials include acrylics, pastes, canvases, resins, textile, and paper to portray strong or smooth structures, and warm colors on the horizon. Fascinated by exploration she is continuously experimenting with fresh art techniques.
She aims to reflect human feelings that both indoor and outdoor landscapes reflect.
"Since I was a child, I always paid close attention to my surroundings - from my home to my school to my workplace. I was particularly drawn to different types of architecture and their rich history.
My ongoing goal with my abstract works is to take different forms of spaces and transform them depending on the style, light, shadow, and openness, and put my creative spin on them. In doing so, my art is an extension of myself - a myriad of emotions, thoughts, wishes and dreams.
At the end of my creative process, I always question myself: is this painting about the indoors or the outdoors? …then, I let each individual decide" – Fee
