Gloria Grau 2019

‘Camins que es troben’

Gloria Grau was born in Barcelona, Spain, in the year 1965. She lives and has her painting studio on the waterfront in the town of Calafell, Tarragona.

Her work is influenced by different masters of Catalan and Spanish painting including Sorolla , Anglada Camarasa, Tàpies i Barceló.

In her tireless quest for new materials and forms, experiments with the spontaneity of the unexpected, the taste for spills and stains. She succumbs to the freedom to do what she wants, how she wants: fabrics full of spots, textures i colors, giving languishing looks, giant flowers.

The best way to experience the Riu d’art Open Air Gallery is with a guided tour! The Riba Rocks association members offer guided tours in either English, Catalan or Spanish. A perfect activity for all the family. (Tours are free, although a donation to the association would be greatly appreciated.)
