Fushia Sublime, Tiffany Gholar

Tiffany Gholar is a lifelong resident of Chicago, Illinois. Her newest series, Post-Consumerism, explores the principles of design using found object assemblages. Her style places great emphasis on color and texture. The majority of her medium scale pieces are constructed of found objects headed for the recycling bin, including cardboard boxes, plastic grocery bags, and packing materials. Her work has been exhibited in several Chicago area venues, including a solo exhibition at Three Peas Art Lounge, a solo exhibition in the Second Floor Gallery of the Fine Arts Building, and the 2010 Chicago Art Open. She also has a rain barrel featured in the Recycle the Raindrops public art project. When she is not painting, she works as a freelance interior designer and receptionist. She studied art as an undergraduate at the University of Chicago and interior design at Harrington College of Design and has a Masters Degree in Painting from Governors State University.
