“Gina Pellon appears to give free reign to her fascination with faces and

their most characteristic features. Although the figure and its face are

fragmented and reconstructed in terms of color, the features register an

all-important obsession with the distinctly female presence. Embracing

abstraction to explore the figure and release its pent-up energies within the

confines of its own imaginary environment, she is able to create a mood

and ambiance that lure the viewer into the painting’s very midst. Eyes blink

flirtatiously behind their fringed lashes and pursed lips humorously invite

comment and conversation. Each figure emerges from its claustrophobic

background of slashing color and line as a unique personality and

participant in some painterly scheme.”
