In this series Gadlin collaborates with contemporary figurative master Ron Hicks in a new series which challenges the choice of materials they used. Identifying the most interesting relationships in their work, both artist worked together to make the viewer look a bit closer at those relationships that seem to be defined by the culmination of form, aggressive texture, expressive line, and an assemblage approach involving mixed media. They call this abstraction-meets-classical-figurative-mastery; "Harmonious Amalgamations". It seems to be the right time to pursue such an unlikely pair. Creating what is undoubtedly the kind of art that will challenge many perspectives in a sophisticated, elegant and refined way.
