Gillian Pokalo is a visual artist living and working near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in the USA. Her artwork integrates printmaking, photography, and painting, and it reflects on the ways that man-made architecture is eclipsed by nature.

During her residency at the Fish Factory, Gillian photo-documented abandoned farmhouses in the East Fjords, developed those images as silkscreens, and created a series of paintings that incorporated her photographic imagery along with cyanotypes of wildflowers that were blooming throughout July. The pieces she created while at the Fish Factory were authentic reflections of the time and place in which they were created.

Thank you, Gillian! :)
