Statement

In my paintings I contemporize the out-dated. With a sentiment for bygone attitudes and appearances, my acrylic on paper, canvas and panel paintings shimmy in two directions: towards the decorative, where I explore long-time infatuation with design, and in a sociological portraiture where innocence is equally dispersed amongst irreverent youth and the blue collar Americana of my Alabama roots.   Preferring turquoise blues, olive greens, muted tones and unfinished background surfaces, my palette is distinct. My technique of evaporating background into swarthy brushstrokes allows time into the work, the acknowledgment of memory, which is imperfect, always unfinished, and congruous to the retro aesthetic and mood.

Hayley Gaberlavage works and lives in New Orleans, Louisiana.
