Greta Grigorian, Los Angeles Member Since May 2012 Artist Statement Greta travels often and her creations are inspired by the various cultures that she has experienced. Her paintings express her vision that we are all connected, and that as humans we share a form of universal consciousness communicated through artistic or creative activity.
Her paintings reflect the golds of Italy, the reds of China, Moroccan blue, greens from the jungles of Costa Rica, the amber of Egypt and the aqua of southern Thailand.
Each piece is crafted with hand cut gold and silver Joss paper from China used by the Chinese to pay homage to their ancestors, and acrylic paint on masonite. Greta combines these materials for her portraits of the people she meets along the many paths she has traveled. She feels that by doing this she too can honor all those people endeavoring to live their lives with grace and artistry.
Greta has exhibited in galleries in Texas and Southern California. She is currently living in Los Angeles.
