SUE ZOLAArtist Profile
Thirteen years ago, I began using glitter art as a medium in my artwork. The playful nature of these tiny reflective and colorful particles feed my inspiration, while still maintaining the substance of my motif. From cultural icons to nostalgic cereal boxes, my work is enhanced by prominent clean lines, adept shading technique, and the utilization of vibrant color. With appreciative patrons and collectors ranging from rock stars to 1st graders, my work is the ultimate conversation piece on any wall.
Recognized as one of the pioneers of this avant-garde artistry, I continue to mature and develop as an artist. As I stay true to my chosen medium some of my recent subject matter has taken on a serious tone, addressing social issues such as equal rights and GMO’s. I have been delighted to discover that glitter adds to my commentary in a way that is demanded in contemporary art today. As well as making the most benign icon “pop” and old romances “novel”, glitter also has the capability to amplify potent content, eliciting a sense of irony, while also accentuating the contradictory temperament between the subject matter and the medium.
