Gloria Marojevic has held a passion for art for as far back as she can remember. At the age of 18 she spent a year travelling around Europe where images of the sea and sky, particularly in Turkey and the Greek islands, were so spectacular they left a lifetime impression upon her. She was mesmerised by the ever-changing beauty of colours and shapes that these scenes presented pinks, reds, blues, orange and purple skies and seas, and all shades of blue and green waters that were constantly moving.
After taking close-up photographs of slices of Agate stone and seeing the translucent vibrancy of colour and the flow of natural abstract design, Marojevic began to paint on glass
placed over a lightbox to mimic this effect. Focusing on light and colour, and often taking the sea as her subject, Marojevic imitates the movement of light and shape with the movement of the paint, which she sometimes pours directly onto the glass, pushing it around with brushes and blowing it across the glass, never certain where it will end up. This process results in works that are vibrant and full of organic movement; paintings that play with the idea of abstraction grounded in the natural world.
