Gabe Gault’s work challenges the assumptions. Employing classical painting techniques while using modern mediums, Gault bucks conformity, not allowing himself or his work to be easily defined. Channeling Renaissance portraiture and still-lifes, Gault explores his identity as a Black American, re-appropriating, breaking down, and repurposing Colonial influences in order to celebrate Culture. The symbiosis of classic imagery representing abundance and wealth and the modern fascination with innovation and forward movement is at the core of Gault’s vision as an artist. Nothing is only one thing, and Gault’s work sets out to challenge our notions of labels and reductive definitions.
