Gloria Zoitl’s world of art is the world of dreaming, searching, challenges, and fears. This is a world depicted by the painter mostly by drawing lines, applying colour and employing composition, in case of using the classical painting technique. When creating a sculpture, she works in selected material ranging from clay and wood to stone and glass, and lately she has been thoroughly exploiting modern media which bring the possibilities of expression to unpredictable levels. The choice is dictated by the author’s momentary inspiration, her intimate orientation and desire which directs her towards the way of expressing her inner world charged with imagination.
Gloria Zoitl spontaneously faces the challenges she brings to life by using her own distinct language of art.
