ABOUT THE ARTIST

Gia Hendrix (American, b. 1999) is a self taught painter based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Hendrix’s work reinterprets her past, creating a visual storybook for intangible moments to stay alive in ephemeral spaces. Color plays a large role in the building of each piece. Works are usually found on dark colors that become representative of a background, and colors become lighter and more vibrant as they reach the foreground. This application allows her to play into a process of self discovery and identity where each layer of color is symbolic of who she was at different points in time. “Sometimes I miss past versions of myself, and often feel them ringing through me and creating a physical work for them to be held in forever allows me to put those old versions and experiences to rest.”
