Gail was in the process of working on a new piece in her "with the grain" series. The new work is much larger than the 9.5 x 9.5" pieces she has made in the past.
There are to be six long scrolls which will be about 2' wide and 10 to 14' high depending on where they're installed. They're to be hung from a wall or ceiling in the middle of a room so people will be able to walk around and through them. *Envisions a paper forest*
My mind balks at the thought of the tedium required for such repetitious work, yet this is what I'm continually drawn to in all art forms. Gail describes the process of her work as meditative and I can understand that.
Gail's other work:
This piece is composed of a shattered Christmas ornament. It is reflective so it changes as one moves in closer to look at the detail. Quite mesmerizing. I'd like to have this as a ceiling treatment, actually. Imagine...

A piece composed of eggshells.
This made an intriguing textured surface.
Gail's studio will be open sporadically for Art Attack.
