"I am inspired by color and the way we individually relate to color. My work is about
the relationship between people and their environment whether it be a physical
place or a feeling created by an experience in that space. The color together with the
movement and texture of the brushstrokes creates a story or a feeling for the viewer
that is open to their own interpretation."

Ariel Gold’s work revolves around color and how we associate, interact and interpret it. Her art is about relationships between people and their environment, whether it is a physical place or a feeling created by an experience in that space. Color together with the movement and texture of brushstrokes creates a story or emotional response that is open to its own interpretation. It can trigger a strong personal connection to a sensation of a place, a mood or a memory. Ariel’s love of color theory pulsates in her work. Her maxim: live vibrantly!

 

Raised in the Metro Detroit area by an editorial cartoonist and a writer, Ariel Gold was exposed to many mediums and captivated by colors and textures from an early age. After attending Cranbrook Kingswood Schools she used college as an opportunity to explore the country and focus on her studies in psychology, interior design and fine art. In 2009 she moved to San Francisco to study at the Academy of Art University. She currently lives there with her husband and two daughters and is an Artist in Residence on Market Street through ArtSpan San Francisco.
