Biography from Hackett-Freedman Gallery:
Ann Gale (b. 1966–) is a figure painter whose portraiture explores the
psychology and sexuality of both artist and subject.  Like those
artists she cites as influences, Antonio López Garcia, Lucian Freud,
Alberto Giacommeti, Gale approaches the figure as an opportunity to
undress the human psyche.

Gale works slowly, drawing and painting directly from the model over a
period of many weeks or months.  Over time, the emotional and
physical demands of maintaining such intimate contact with her subject
leads to a dematerialization and fragmentation of the painted
figure.  This breakdown is expressed visually through Gale's use
of short, fragmented brushstrokes that merge the figure with the
ground.

Ann Gale received her BFA from Rhode Island College, Providence, Rhode
Island, and her MFA from Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut. 
A professor at the University of Washington School of Art in Seattle,
Gale she has been awarded a John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship (2007), Western States Artists Foundation/ National
Endowment for the Arts Fellowship (1996), and an Elizabeth Greenshields
Foundation Grant (1997).
