Redbud Gallery presents Sue Zola: Candy Colored Kisses opening reception
Fifteen years ago, Sue Zola began using glitter as a medium in her artwork. The playful nature of these tiny reflective and colorful particles feeds her inspiration, while still maintaining the substance of her motif. From cultural icons to nostalgic cereal boxes, Zola's work is enhanced by prominent clean lines and the utilization of vibrant color.
As the artist stays true to her chosen medium and continue to mature and develop as an artist some of her recent subject matter has taken on a more serious tone, addressing social issues such as equal rights and GMO’s. Zola has been delighted to discover that glitter adds to her commentary in a way that is demanded in contemporary art today. As well as making the most benign icons “pop” and old romances “novel,” glitter also has the ability to amplify potent content, eliciting a sense of irony, while accentuating the contradictory temperament between the subject matter and the medium. With appreciative patrons and collectors ranging from rock stars to first graders, Sue's glitter art is the ultimate conversation piece on any wall.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through January 3, 2016.
