Contemporary art fair The Artist Project returns to Toronto February 19-22, 2015
December 18, 2014, TORONTO – Abstract artist Gloria Green makes her debut appearance at The Artist Project this February. Green works primarily with acrylic and large canvases. Her colourful, uplifting works have been seen in a variety of venues throughout Toronto over the past decade.
Dedicated health care worker by day and artist by night, Green’s work is the result of a desire to find a tangible expression for the stories of hope and courage she sees in her work as a clinical dietitian in the Pediatric Oncology Unit at SickKids in downtown Toronto
Citing artists like Franz Kline and Rothko as principle interests, Green studied abstract painting under Lydia Panart at The Avenue Road School of Art. In addition to her workplace influences, Green draws on her love of music for her creations. Wide variation is evident between each piece or series. “Art is everywhere, in the music I listen to and the people I work with. I draw inspiration from it all,” notes Green.
