Gloria Replogle


Gloria Replogle (°1967, Chicago, United States) is a self-taught, abstract painter for the past 30 years from the mid-west. The creative process for me is one that is both automatic and emotional. For me, creating my art is like life, in constant movement, constant change. The creation process is cathartic, allowing my emotions to spill out onto my canvas as a release.

I create paintings, sculptures, and mixed media artworks. By applying abstraction, I try to create intense personal moments by means of rules and omissions, acceptance and refusal, luring the viewer round and round in circles.

My paintings don’t usually reference recognizable form. The results are deconstructed to the extent that meaning is shifted and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted. By examining the ambiguity and variations, I try to increase the dynamic between audience and author by objectifying emotions and investigating the duality that develops through different interpretations.

This results in the fact that the audience can easily imagine their own interpretation without being hindered by the historical reality.
