Located on the iconic art hub of Canyon Road in Santa Fe, GF Contemporary is a fine art gallery that represents both emerging and established artists. Always innovative and fresh, GF Contemporary is constantly bringing in new artworks so there is always something exciting to see. With a diverse clientele ranging from first time art lovers to seasoned collectors the gallery appeals to all demographics. Created in 2009 by Deborah Fritz to focus less on representational art and more on medium-driven process based art. Featuring works by award winning artist Pascal Pierme; collectors respond to the simplicity of his approach, which balances geometric abstraction with organic form. There is an undertone of symbolism as well, a hieroglyphic shorthand that hints at other visual languages. He creates an extraordinary range of abstract meditations that seem to arise directly from the material itself. His first monograph will be released in early 2022. Another artist is Gigi Mills, a former dancer and self-taught painter, Mills references not only the physical world through her figures and interiors but demonstrates a myriad of viewpoints resulting in truly imaginary spaces.
“At GF Contemporary we understand that acquiring art can be a passionate process that occurs between the collector, artist and gallery. We strive to create a remarkable, ongoing collaboration between those forces. Our ultimate objective is for the collector to feel engaged in a long lasting relationship that will ultimately resulting a life enriched by fine art and the camaraderie of the collection process,” states Deborah Fritz. “We would love to participate with you in your personal art journey.”
