We are deeply saddened by the sudden loss of artist and friend, Bryan Nash Gill. We have had the pleasure and sincere honor of getting to know the artist and representing his work. He has touched each of us and will be deeply missed. May 17th, 2013.
“The interesting aspect of art is that you have to be both objective and subjective when you are doing it, and that is the trick. It’s a sense you have of knowing when something is different and not overworking the piece. It’s the ‘ah-hah’ moment that we all speak of, when you know it feels right and you have what you were looking for.” Bryan Nash Gill
