An Artists' Market was founded by Gloria Rossi to support artists by creating a new platform for art sales, and at the same time build an intimate and fun art community. Gloria saw the opportunity to have an Instagram based art market, where artists would periodically show available works. This would be an easy and fun way to approach art especially apt in the current times we live in.
An Artists' Market takes a playful and intimate approach to art sales bridging the gap between the traditional art fair and the gallery show. Gloria's light curation in choosing the participating group of artists together with fellow artist Emi Avora, allow them to place full trust in the said group in terms of choice of works. This way the art mix is alive, truthful and interesting for both the artists and the buyers.
About the Artist(s)
Gloria is originally from Italy and now lives and works in Singapore. Growing up in Italy has set the foundations for her sophisticated eye and appreciation of beauty, whereas the many years spent studying abroad have sharpened her ambitious and eclectic vision.
Gloria started pursuing her career as an artist after several years in the finance sector, following her long life call for art.
Her studio practice currently evolves around painting, collage and sculptural installation where she explores the themes of identity, beauty, and fragility.
She favors the form of collage and sculpture, where she uses found, discarded objects, ripped fragments of paper and textiles to create striking assemblages of utmost unity albeit the product of various disparate materials.
Her practice is in constant evolution and growth, mirroring her unsatiable curiosity, as she aims to catalyze in her works the same energy and catalysis found in life, and to ultimately repeatedly question where do we, as individuals, belong. The works’ integrity is reinforced and harmonized by Gloria’s sophisticated eye and sensibility for color and composition and even more so, by her incessant zest for life which runs through her work like an electric thread.
