Quote from a National Academy of Design post about the exhibition reception:
Gale paints people from direct observation, searching for what is apparent beyond the guarded and practiced stance of the individual. She focuses on measuring and distilling observations of light and form. In her recent work, she focuses on the psychological presence of her models and the intimacy revealed through the process of observation. The image exists as an intricate composite of observations revealing the fragile and momentary nature of perception.
