, July 12th, 2012. Home Design, Creating a fluid, ever-changing canvas in the home of artist Sam Gilliam and gallery owner Annie Gawlak.

An airy loft, filled with light and flowing spaces. A contemporary gallery, perfectly composed. A casual beach house in the city, open to nature. These distinctive visions come together with magnetic force in the Washington, DC, home of renowned abstract artist Sam Gilliam and Annie Gawlak, director and owner of G Fine Art.

This bold synthesis bridges design categories. And it suits the lifestyle of a long-term Washington art consultant and a pioneering artist, known for dissolving distinctions between painting and sculpture. Originally linked to the Washington Color School, with its characteristic fields of color and geometrics, Gilliam gained international prominence in 1968, when he cast off the rigid supports holding his paintings in place. Draping and suspending these richly color-saturated canvases in space, he moved beyond the picture plane, “beginning,” as he and Gawlak wrote in an art journal, “an advance into the theatre of life.”

Also typical of creative spirits, nothing remains static in their home. “When people get their houses decorated, it stays like that forever,” says Gawlak. “We really feel that nothing is forever. Art changes. Sometimes pieces rotate. You try moving something. It usually means five other things have to be moved. It’s a very fluid space.”

Summing up, she confirms, “We really, really enjoy this house,” but adds dispassionately, “It’s not a jewel. Some day, somebody will buy this property and tear the house down. Nothing we do is intended to improve its value. Everything is intended to please us.”
