Spriha Gupta is a Montgomery NJ resident mixed media artist.
As an artist, Spriha likes to create art that is timeless…that flows and touches your soul.
Organic forms brought onto canvas through mixed media holds an exciting and challenging world for her that she continues to explore with each passing day. Her subject varies from Nature to the abstract … any form that makes a relationship with her through its color, flow and textures inspires her to bring it out on canvas. Her creative process involves repurposing found objects and giving them a second life. She uses different gel mediums with acrylic paints layered sometimes with different materials giving an almost three-dimensional textured feel to the pieces. Products like tissue paper, old magazines, bark of a tree, flowers, leaves, cheesecloth, handmade paper and even packaging material all find their way into most of the pieces she creates. For her, the life cycle of nature is enthralling and she takes it upon herself to in some way continue that cycle through her paintings.
Adriana Groza is a Hamilton NJ resident fluid acrylics artist and instructor, originally from Transylvania, Romania.
My artwork is abstract and created using fluid acrylics, manipulated directly on deep edge canvas by various means, without a brush. Art is a means for my self-healing and renewal, and a way to reach into an understanding of time and matter.
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 thin, with mediums, to a consistency of my liking, 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.
