Sunni Gibbons – Statement
After many years of painting large watercolor flowers, I began a new direction in my work focusing on figurative and human interest subject matter. Still realistic but loosely painted, I shifted the medium to oil. The field laborers became a rich resource to study both the human form and the human condition. Having the opportunity of working closely with them in their work environment was an honor. These paintings are in the Farm Workers of the Central Coast collection; five of which were recently on exhibit in the San Jose CA City Hall in the offices of Councilwoman Sylvia Arenas. The Farmer’s Market paintings were developed as an extension of the farm worker series.
A recent project at the Santa Maria Museum of Flight in Santa Maria, California was the development of a Memorial Garden dedicated to a celebration of Aviation’s Heroines from the early days of flight through our modern day astronauts. The final piece to this garden was a 28’ x 8’ mural depicting the lives of many of these women aviators. I created the mural entirely as a computer generated series of images the film for which was printed in large format and adhered to aluminum substrate for outdoor exhibition. The mural and the garden were completed and dedicated in September of 2012.
After such an ambitious project and relocating to San Jose, CA, I have resumed my more personal art in watercolor, oil and acrylic.
