About the Ebook
A year after graduating and not being able to find a good job with my degree, I decided to go back to school to study what I had always wanted to learn: painting. As I repurposed discarded materials for my paintings, I discovered the artistic purpose of my life. This book tells the story of my circuitous journey to creating my first major body of work as an artist. More than just an exhibition catalogue, this book highlights the events in my life that inspired my work while featuring large color photos of finished paintings and works in progress. This is the story of Post-Consumerism. This is a story of reinvention.
I am a Chicago based artist working in a variety of media. I have three primary bodies of work: The Doll Project, Post-Consumerism, and Recessionism. I studied art as an undergraduate at the University of Chicago and interior design at Harrington College of Design and hold a Masters Degree in Painting from Governors State University. My art has been exhibited in several Chicago area venues, including a solo exhibition at Three Peas Art Lounge and the Second Floor Gallery of the Fine Arts Building. When I am not painting, I work as a freelance interior designer and receptionist. To see more of my work and purchase it online, please visit www.TiffanyGholar.com
