Gale Antokal Statement

My drawings are made with mixtures of white chalk, graphite, flour and ash. Personal history is always present in my artwork, whether straightforward or oblique. This first hand experience might not be the subject matter itself, but a filter through which I perceive subjects. I am preoccupied with the question of what we leave behind to prove that we have existed. I use photo sources that are original, from books and the Internet as the basis of my work. I construct a meaning in my work that is not apparent in the photo, in order to anchor my memory, so that it is a constant from which I can work. The photos create a reference, but in most cases, they are not the truth. At times, incidental elements in the photo’s far distance become the main event in which I am interested. I define A place when there is an “above and “below.” A space would only possess one of these elements, not an intersection of the two. Often I situate my work in a place without a vanishing point, with a vague sense of diminution, to further the ambiguity, and create a stateless space, devoid of specific location. My subjects are in a state of dispersal. They depict natural migration or cultural deportation. Similarly, the materials I use can be brushed away in a moment. These materials, ineffable light dry powders, can be easily dispersed by the slightest movement of air. The finished pieces are vulnerable even after being sprayed with fixative. This is an appropriate metaphor for any culture or life that has potential of being wiped away in a brief historical moment.
