The Flow by Olivia Gatewood
Known for her abstract expressions, which involve the distortion and rearrangement of the natural order of images, Olivia Gatewood produces artwork that is an expressive production of creativity and uniqueness.
A North Carolina native, Gatewood studied visual arts at North Carolina A&T State University and received her B.F.A with honors from California State University in Turlock.
Gatewood’s techniques of painting possess a movement that can only be found in the natural world. Although her compositions may be abstract in subject matter, Gatewood often provides references to focus one’s attention on her interpretations. Her highly textured works are painted with various media. She uses oils, acrylics, gels, textiles, and found objects to freely express her intense passion and to engage her audiences.
