Gholar's style is improvisational and intuitive with an emphasis on color and texture. Post-Consumerism takes its title from Gholar's, incorporation of found objects and recycled materials typically associated with consumer culture, such as cardboard boxes, bubble wrap, and grocery bags. These common materials are transformed into works of abstract art. It is not just about salvage. It is about redemption.
Tiffany Gholar is a lifelong resident of Chicago, Illinois. She studied art as an undergraduate at the University of Chicago and interior design at Harrington College of Design and is currently a candidate for a Masters Degree in Painting at Governors State University.
