Her art can be viewed in the window display at Princeton Makes, in the Princeton Shopping Center, and the public is invited to an art talk and demonstration on Thursday, January 6th, starting at 6:30 pm. Refreshments are complimentary.

I step inside my studio, shedding the constraints of daily schedule and routine, with a deep confidence and trust in my process. A blank stretched canvas, different color paints that I dilute, with mediums, to the right viscosity, and several unconventional instruments and techniques for moving the paint around; these are my tools. I apply my foundation color, and then allow my feelings and imagination to wander free with the fluid pigments. I am not dominating or restricting. The recurring views in my art most often connect to time and matter seen from antagonistic perspectives. It might be a timeless and calming beach scene where I capture the split and irreplicable moment of a foamy wave splashing the sands, or a snapshot in the fleeting existence of a flower or a creature. – Adriana Groza
