Floral Fusion: A Story of Resilience
April 7th – May 2nd
Opening reception: Friday, April 7th from 7-11pm
Artist talk and demo: Saturday, April 22nd from 6-7pm
Join us this first Friday for the opening of Floral Fusion: A Story of Resilience, a solo exhibition by Adriana Groza! Throughout the exhibit we’ll also be hosting an artist talk on Saturday the 22nd from 6-7pm where Groza will discuss her works and provide a live demo of her fluid acrylic method.
“The Floral Fusion series explores the complex relationship between the familiar and the unknown, the reality and the imagination. As an artist, I have always had a passion for exploring the depths of color and composition. In this collection, I sought to create works of art that defy traditional boundaries and tools, invoking a sense of intrigue and discovery through vibrant colors and bold movements.
The inspiration for this collection comes from the resilience of weeds and their flowers. As they grow and reach out in all directions, constantly weaving intricate webs and forging new connections with their surroundings, they inspire me to see the hidden beauty of everyday life. As an immigrant from Romania, I view my own life as that of a weed, where I have developed new roots, formed new connections, relationships, and my own social web.” – Adriana Groza
Adriana Groza is a visual artist who was born and raised in Transylvania, Romania, and currently resides in Hamilton, New Jersey. Her artistic focus is on creating abstract paintings using fluid acrylics on gallery-wrapped canvas, and she has been working in this medium since late 2017.
Groza’s journey as an artist began in 2009 when she started experimenting with paints and canvases. She progressed through self-guided learning and sought out mentors like Janet Purcell, Ritch Gaiti, Zina Umyn and Leni Paquet-Morante to expand her understanding of drawing, landscape, and abstract painting styles. Her progress was slowed by life events like raising children and physical illness, but she persevered and continued to develop her skills.
