Gayle states:"For some time my deep concern over changes in the environment has informed my work. The theme of living with uncertainty and forces beyond our control, on a personal and collective level, has been the impetus for recent series. Though the imagery varies according to my thoughts, imagination or travels, it is usually an exploration of the enormous effect that change and loss have on the environment depicted and those within it."
"I'm drawn to things that are worn or scarred, and places where life is adverse and survival are difficult. The paintings I create chronicle my emotional journey as much as the literal landscape I'm exploring. As honest expressions, I feel my paintings become embodiments of the universal human condition, offering connection and support to others.
May they remind us all to protect what we value most."
