For her current series, Gay Summer Rick traveled LA city streets, beaches and highways, stopping often to absorb the quiet vibration of life on the ‘urban coast.’ With palette knives and oil paint, her signature overlay of colors, a melding of impressionism, expressionism and abstract color-field painting, speak as much about an emotion evoked by a place as they do about the place itself.
