Gloria’s Approach to Art and Color
My work is intended to both engulf and embrace the energizing feeling of wonderment. When I see an object or environment, I first consider what artistic or pallet change I might make that would have a major impact on how others see and react to it. It is not just an artistic exploration of possibilities, but an emotional and scientific one, as well. After all, while such an exploration is a search for answers, it is also a quest for the subsequent effects and reactions that vary in each of us as individuals. Because we each react to color, shapes, textures and other aesthetics differently, my motivation comes from the joy of creating unique solutions to positively impact people’s lives, and to perhaps make their lives richer by finding the aesthetic solution that is “just perfect” for them.
