Gali’s green art
Last weekend I went to visit my friend Galia Gluckman and her family in Great Neck. Its always such a pleasure to be in their home where the walls are covered in her beautiful artwork.
Gali’s art is big, bold, very colorful and makes me feel happy (its a good reflection of the woman who made it). I think my favourites are the landscapes: of which ‘Blue Landscape’ and ‘Red Landscape’ are shown at left. But every time she starts a new series she surprises me by making me like it even more than the last!
The amazing collages are made by cutting up old magazines. Its upcycling at its best, making so much more by diverting the glossy pages that would have ended up in landfill. This year she won the Green Artist award at the International Artexpo in NYC.
You can see more of her work and read about the process (and order limited edition prints) on her website. And her work is in the December issue of Interior Design magazine where they round up the “best of 2009” — so get yourself a copy of that!
