About The Artist
Raw canvas, bold color, and glitter unite to celebrate transience and imperfection. I want viewers to feel inspired to travel and feel the sort of rebirth you can have when you explore your world.
Adele Gilani [Oakland] is known for her imaginative, glistening, Fauvist-like landscape paintings. The freedom and joy she experiences in the great outdoors are palpable in her large color-saturated paintings. Many of Adele’s paintings have a pink sky as a self-referential nod to motherhood. She also incorporates glitter into many of her works as a reminder that we are all stardust. This is sometimes juxtaposed with raw canvas to create a wabi-sabi effect, celebrating transience and imperfection. Adele graduated from the University of Kentucky with a degree in fine arts. She is a graphic designer, printmaker, painter, and art gallery owner in Sausalito. She is also an experienced teacher, avid nature-lover, and mother of two.
