The Borough of Trees

Gail-Marie Boykewich
In a small studio in the New Jersey heartland she illuminates vignettes of the surreal and the banal, crossing over the two realities with such fluidity who is to think that these subjects are not members of your own family. Her aesthetic touches on the folk art traditions but with such sophistication it turns it on its head. A bright vernacular yet her melancholy subjects eyes see to feel like portals into another world.
