About The Artist

Survival, destruction and renewal are part of everyday life in the Texas Hill Country. These elements collide in Gay Gaddis’ work through bursts of color and unexpected contrast under a vast and ever-changing sky.

Like all her endeavours, Gay’s approach to painting is both unique and unconventional. She faces fierce wind, driving rain, scorching sun and enveloping darkness to capture what she sees in the moment.

A true cowgirl at heart, Gay believes nature directly affects our thinking and actions, and as such, her Texas roots both inspire and inform her artwork. She paints from her family’s home at the Double Heart Ranch, alongside a herd of goats, cattle dogs and authentic Texas Longhorns. From driving tractors to feeding animals, Gay’s quiet life on the ranch is very different than that of her life as Founder and CEO.

Exhibitions

Whether painting in 105-degree heat or the pitch black of midnight, Gay discusses her approach in preparing Sky Descending, her show at The Curator Gallery in New York. Lauded by Paper Magazine and others, it was one of the most successful solo exhibitions in the gallery’s history.
