Distinguished Artist Series

Please Zoom with us for Adriana Groza, presenting “A Fluid Art Experience, Art with Fluid Acrylics.”

Thursday, March 18 at 7:00 p.m.

Adriana Groza’s art is abstract and created using fluid acrylics, manipulated directly on the canvas. She applies her foundation color and then allows her feelings and imagination to wander free with the fluid pigments, without dominating or restricting. Several unconventional instruments and techniques are used to move the paint around without a brush.

Adriana’s demonstration will show the surprising effects of working with fluid acrylics. She will share how her artistic process has been transformative and cultivated her vision.

“Art is a means for my self-healing and a way to reach into an understanding of time and matter. I am unlocked to bring to light what arises on the canvas before me. In that sense, I am as much a spectator as a creator as my paintings take shape. The realization of physical grounding in a space that has been here before me and will continue to live on after I am gone, allows me to center myself in living precisely within that moment, and living it in its entirety. My best works are active and imply movement across the space, or they emerge from, or descend into space for the observer.”
