Gilda Oliver who is a painter, digital computer and ceramic clay sculptures mixed media artist. She graduates of Alfred University and Cranbrook Academy of Art, is an internationally recognized artist, with extensive experience of longstanding commitment to community & transformational art projects, creates her own mixed Media collages and large digital photography works.
Her paintings and mixed media feature portraits which combine a sculptural formalism with digital freedom. Evident is a playfulness which mixes fantasy and documentary realism. Mixing subjects from Hollywood, Disney and Modern ART, these works use nostalgia as a frame to interrogate of our cinema/ fantasy /internet worlds.
Her collage technique is intimately related to her sculptural and mosaic work. The superimposition of portraits and tonalities builds an imaginary timeline.
