Gina De Gorna- Statement and Biography:

STATEMENT: 

One beautiful painting a day makes the ugliness go away! Not everything is art and Art is not everything, but it comes close, because Art is everywhere and all the time. In the beginning, art was all beautiful things created by nature. The incredible human abilities sense beauty and harmony and wish to hold, preserve and enjoy it. Art makes you experience the beauty of the world. Art itself is so powerful that it may tell stories, show feelings, express passion or fury. It may be happy or sad. Works of art can be as tiny as miniatures or as enormous as the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor. Art exists as addition to language. It is like expression of sensations and thoughts, a way of thinking too subtle and delicate for words. Art with its magical splendor is so powerful thus influences and changes life for good. For me art implies some personal, unanalyzable creative power. From the artist art requires love, veracity and perseverance. In return, it reveals the untamed passion. For the public, art with its magnificent beauty improves mood and health and builds better persons. It engages the intellect, softens the heart and frees the spirit. 

BIOGRAPHY

Gina De Gorna is a very well established artist and a published author. She is highly educated and well-travelled and she truly believes in the healing power of love, beauty and color. She is convinced that the artist's main job is to focus and devote their art and work to improve and make life more beautiful.  

Gina comes from a family of artists and craftsmen.  She has lived and studied Fine Art extensively both in Europe and in the United States. Receiving her first art award at the age of ten, she later became a teacher for 11 years. In her 35 years as an artist, Gina De Gorna finished more than 1000 art pieces in both realistic and abstract styles. She continuously does research, reads and writes about art, tutors, and experiments with color, art techniques, styles and painting subjects. In 2002 she visited Hawaii and found her paradise.  She eventually moved to the Big Island where she began creating art inspired by the tropics.  Her personal favorite subject, the sunset, is evident in many of her paintings.  

In her spare time Gina works with both adults and students and helps organize many charity campaigns to support art, artists and young talents. She has donated numerous paintings to a variety of charities and fund raising events. One of her favorite contributions has been the donation of numerous original paintings to improve and enhance the appearance of children’s hospitals.  One of the things that makes her a great person, as well as artist is her firm belief in helping young people showcase their art.  Under her leadership students participated in painting murals and together they decorated a whole children's ward in a hospital. 

As a full-time artist, Gina De Gorna can offer originals of both oil and acrylic paintings as well as a variety of limited edition Giclee reproductions, posters, cards and prints on canvas, acrylic, metal and paper. Some of her paintings are even available in a variety of home décor items.   Her work incorporates a wide variety of subject matter, including murals, illustrations, portraits, landscape and seascape images, animals, birds, sunsets, fish and flowers.  Her paintings are recognized for their realistic and expressional values. Her bold and colorful style is the product of her love of color and contrast and is a continuing process of exploration through which the artist is seeking to portray personal or visionary interpretations of the world

Gina's paintings have been shown online, and as well as in art galleries both in solo and group exhibitions in Europe, Canada, and the USA.
