GIA STRAUSS

Short Introduction

‘We have art so we don’t die of truth’ (Friedrich Nietzsche)

 

Transcending the tedium of every day life, the authenticity of great works of art should command recognition. It should never be mundane and should always be thought provoking. This is my goal as an artist. An artist should have the ability to convey visually and with great sensitivity the concerns of life today.

 

The nature of my work has sometimes been described as ‘Illuministic’, the genre of illuminism. It is perhaps an appropriate label in that the consummate objective of my work is to illuminate the important issues of today through the spectrum of creative insight. In this way I hope to portray from a surrealistic view point an evocative perspective of our times—an indelible portrayal of life during the second decade of the twenty-first century.

 

My artistic abilities predominantly reside with films, art performance, paintings and piano compositions.
