An artist whose work evokes both memory and the "gaps, sinkholes, and other chasms" found in our experiences, Gael Stack is one of the most accomplished American painters working today. Her large canvases and smaller drawings use fragments of words and images, often layered over one another like a palimpsest, to create a visual language that explores the past's implacable hold on the present, with what is unknown and unspoken occasionally poking through.

Gael Stack received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Illinois in Urbana and a Master of Fine Arts degree from Southern Illinois University in Carbondale. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally with attending critical attention. Group exhibitions include the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (Exxon Series and Selections from the Exxon Series), the Dallas Museum of Art, the El Paso Museum of Art, the Blanton Museum of Art, Austin, Texas, Yale University Art Gallery, the Menil Collection, Stedman/Hubbard Gallery, Paris, France, the Krannert Art Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, the Federal Reserve Bank, Houston, the Federal Reserve Bank, Dallas, Amarillo Art Center, Janie C. Lee Master drawings, New York, the San Antonio Museum of Art, and the Tamarind Institute.
