Invitation for Curious Figurations featuring Gilda Oliver at The Art Closet Gallery.

Although there are variations every large head still has this basic essence about it. They are also showing Mixed Media and digital collages. Their paintings and mixed media feature portraits combine a sculptural formalism with digital freedom. Evident is a playfulness that mixes fantasy and documentary realism. Mixing subjects from Hollywood and Modern Art, these works use nostalgia as a frame to explore our cinema, fantasy, and internet worlds.

Gilda Oliver Artistic Team's Sculptures.

Their collage techniques are intimately related to their sculptural and mosaic work. The superimposition of portraits and tonalities builds an imaginary timeline. More of Gilda Oliver artistic teams’ unforgettable imagery can be seen on Gilda Oliver’s Instagram and at Art Closet Gallery’s website alongside work by an amazing group of artists that the Oliver artistic team is excited to exhibit with.
