About Ginny Togrye
Sculptural painting is reminiscent of a frieze, relief sculptureas seen in architectural elements in ancient Greek and Roman buildings. It is also similar to Impasto painting, a method of that involves thick paint application to a canvas or board, as used with many impressionist painters.My art is visually dynamic and textural...it is meant to be touched. I have had a lifelong passion for art and it’s creation is a euphoric transporting experience. My hope is to convey this passion and joy to my audience. I am thankful for the opportunity and time to experiment and play. My sculptural painting technique was developed from my influences as a sculpture minor at university and my love for painting and color. Although I have great freedom in my schedule, I am very regimented and disciplined with my hours, allowing time to be a student learning new things and techniques. Currently this involves a clay sculpture class, to complement my current work. I draw inspiration from life and travel; trying to view the world differently, frame those things with my eye uniquely, and take lots of pictures for reference. The tools I use for sculptural painting are modeling paste, acrylic paint, palate knives, cake decorating tools, clay tools and dental tools.
