The Gallery - Oz's Art


I can’t believe she is only twenty years old! Looking at her art makes me realize how much of a schlep I was at her age. I spent more time trying to not work than she has creating these beautiful art works. When I came upon her blog just one look at her pictures made me feel like I had to post them on my sight. They are so playful and alive! They are a joy to look at, but beneath the surface they can be equally as dark and harsh. These pictures aren’t the whispy dreams or heavy broodings of someone playing artist. Any sense of melancholy is easily over powered by her bright colors, mythic subjects, and stress on beauty in its various forms. If she is creating this type of work at the age of 20, what will she be producing in 10, 20, or 40 years? The middle two are my personal favorites.

I love her work. After seeing thousands of insects and "butterflies" in the art world lately, it is so nice to see one that has been rendered CREATIVELY, just emanating emotion. That is an incredible picture, as are her others. Thank you so much for sharing this--made my night!

Wow. Looks to me like an old soul in a young body giving her talent and her calling some serious attention. Thanks for gifting her art to me.

Thanks for the link Rev, beautiful awe inspiring art work, very colorful, and yet forlorn at the same time. I see a reoccuring them with apples and women, perhaps temptation ~ anyhow thanks! :)

I am glad you like the work, nothing but the best on the cube head sight. She makes me realize how much of an idiot I was at that age. Or am now.
