Gabriel Lovejoy (born, 1975) is an artist, educator, and graphic designer. The open narrative that is present in his paintings pushes the concept of ambiguity while being visually grounded with a sound sense of design. He juxtaposes contrasting elements and styles to enhance a complex view of the union between the real and perceived. Gabriel received an MFA in painting in 2015 and he currently lives in Savannah, Georgia with his wife and two children where he works at SCAD as a professor of foundation studies.



ARTIST STATEMENT - Gabriel Lovejoy

The “truths” embedded in us through heritage are collapsing. These paintings express the uncertainty found in today’s spasmodic atmosphere. A new reality has been brought forth through our media driven culture as multiple viewpoints have the option to take center stage simultaneously. The structure of connected symbols and combinations not of opposites, but of oppositions, exists to defy universal interpretation. Because of this opposition, the space that connects the two is energized like a magnetic field between positive and negative poles. The area within oscillation, between consciousness and unconsciousness, between yes and no, contains an exorbitant amount of extraneous visual information.

This is the space that I record.
