Epic Ideas

Art is a narrative that stirs the soul. It’s purpose is to inspire, teach and heal through inquiry. 

The value to be measured is not in shock, visual trickery or even quality of craft. 

The value is manifest by our experience in its presence.

Art is a conduit to the sublime nature of our shared existence.

The epic ideas page previews just a few of the exciting works being explored in the studio, concepts on human connection, acceptance and compassion. Proposals here are in production or design development stages.

Coming soon: Namaste, Categorically Human - Parts May Vary, Chain of Command, Judge Not, See Me.

The LOVEvil Project


All designs are Copyrighted by the artist, Gail Folwell, Folwell Studios, LLC

The LOVEvil project is a digital, moving, light art installation conceived to inspire pause, joy and compassion at airports around the world.  The 40’ tower reads L O V E from bottom up, the ‘E’ rotates to read, E V I L from the top down.

A series of nine projected themes celebrate all of humanity, kindness, laughter and connection. As the ‘O’ revolves, evils’ attempt to prevail, darkness spreads to the other letters from the black ‘I’ sidewall. The cinematic content starts to short circuit, the ‘light’ flickers briefly until ‘love’ and light starts to return with the ‘O’ back to center … The concept - love reigns supreme. This epic idea sells nothing, supports no brand. It is Art manifest to unite us, an iconic installation breaking boundaries with laughter and joy for travelers world wide.

Digitally mapped video is projected onto the letters, a nine concept series rotation about people, diversity, connecting, joy, laughter 1) Arrivals gate greetings, 2)Humanitarian aid recipients uniting 3) Peace advocates maybe? 4) Olympic sports moments 5) Music, concert crowds 6) Great movie clips, like the kissing scenes from Cinema Paradisio 7) World Religions, Monte Python-esque laughing heads zooming across the screen/Joyous ceremonies 8) Travelers merging in sites around the world!! 9) A mosaic of millions of beautiful smiling faces -United colours of Beneton-esque - this is a work in progress - stay tuned.

DIMENSIONS: 10’ tall illuminated letters, 40’ tall tower, rotating ‘O’.

My 5 year ‘MTP’ (massive Transformative purpose), is to move one billion people toward a positive and compassionate state of mind. To do that - this one LOVEvil piece will be influential, conceptual but clear, sought after and spreading light, joy, happiness in stressed environments in public art sites - ideally airports - all over the world. 

This series has come about as a series of dreams and meditations. The collective body of work on the topic of light and connection is called CONDUIT.

I have a platform and a responsibility to contribute positively.

My core virtues are Optimism and Love

My core purpose - to inspire teach and heal

So … basically I want to heal the planet. It’s a big project, starting with a dream and a vision.


Art is a conduit to the sublime nature of our shared existence.
