The way of the artist Gloria Romberg lead her via Berlin to Ostend. This place, working place for artists like James Ensor and Leon Spilliaert and an eternal source of inspiration, became and is the place of her choice.
The magical light of Ostend, the scent of the sea, the unique atmosphere of this unique city and the art of Gloria Romberg are a very strong symbiosis.
The architecture of the modern cities and how this could look like in near future is a main theme in her works.
Not only the architecture, even the universe, the environment and ecology are elementary themes for her paintings.
Painters like Hundertwasser, Immendorff and Magritte and designers as Colani are examples of artists with a free spirit. And precisely this is the aspect of the art and works of Gloria Romberg:. She has a real free spirit.
The beautiful strong paintings w ith lucent colours, the creativity coming
from her explosive strength in her paintings are essential ingredients in
her unique w ork, even as her painted interior art objects and installations,
also outdoor, so being in direct contact w ith nature. She calls this
"inclusive art". This w ill appeal to people, provoking reactions, making
them thoughtful. Exactly that is the intention and purpose of Gloria
Romberg and her impressive paintings, w hich, although not commercial
and mainstream w orks,,but exclusive, are so appreciated by the public
and collectors. Especially the, by herself developed, ow n GREVOLUTION
style of w orking. As contemporary art has got a purpose, so has her w ork. "Let us change this w orld for good ", she explains."There are coming
generations to live here. We are not alone."
Here, right at the sea shore, she lives w ith her female partner and muse, the cartoonist StellaR. An end of her art can not be seen. This city of Oostend is a
constantly bubbling source of inspiration for her art and her free spirit. Or as she says: "From head to art "
