Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, Gloria Green is an artist who has developed a process based on her early training in classical music, her knowledge of Science and her passion for the abstract. Gloria first obtained a degree in Nutrition from Ryerson University, followed by a Master’s of Science from the University of Toronto. Years of self-teaching, observation, information gathering and experimentation have replaced more traditional arts training. Working in healthcare for several years, Gloria draws from her honed and intuitive sense of compassion, empathy, dedication and the ability to hear and see beyond the obvious.
Passion and emotion are at the root of the work, but the freedom is a result of the approach; unconventional, whimsical, heartfelt and intuitive, thriving in the delight of finding obscure designs and creative context in my surroundings; this is where inspiration, discovery, emotions find their way onto the canvas.
I thrive in the delight of finding the most obscure designs and creative context in my surroundings. From cracked concrete, decayed and eroded sidewalks and streets, to the survival or collapse of the urban landscape and the weather’s impact on our everyday lives, to the need for structure within a controlled environment; this is where inspiration, discovery and emotions find their way onto the canvas.
The techniques used can vary from painting to painting, giving way to a process that is driven by the subject matter at the core of the inspiration; in that instant and within context.Bright and colourful, dark and moody, light and humourous, or edgy and precise, combining the abstract and the organic; my work in acrylic and mixed media has grown to become a rich and versatile collection where each painting aims to elicit individual interpretation from the viewer.
‘Art is a continuous journey for me, full of surprises, observation and discovery and a good dose of self-exploration”
