I am fascinated by the emotional, behavioral and spiritual transformation process that we go through during our life. I use oxidation as an analogical symbol of this in my work.
When I surrender the piece to the oxidation reaction, there is when I achieve the greatest definition of my artwork. Instead of wanting to control the outcome, I exercise my belief in the beauty of the natural evolution of life.
This is the moment that I free myself from the fear of the unpredictable and choose to live and expand my own truth.Through this creative process, I seek to discover more about my inner self.
Ana Gaion is a contemporary artist. Born in Porto Velho/RO, Amazon-Brazil, now she lives and works on the beautiful island of Maui, HI, US.
Her mixed media work explores the psychological, spiritual, emotional and philosophical aspects of the human experience.
Her multilayered artwork has oxidized iron as its main component.
Initially self taught, Gaion’s work was greatly impacted through the teachings of the renowned artist Dick Nelson, who became an important influence in the evolution of her artistic process.
Her art has been exhibited in many group juried shows. In 2016, she had a solo exhibition at Galeria Afonso Ligorio, Porto Velho/RO, in Brazil.
Throughout her career she received multiple awards in Brazil and in Hawaii for her paintings.
Gaion’s artworks can be found in private and public collections in Brazil, United States, Japan, Argentina and Spain.
