ARIEL GOLD is available for private commissions to create the perfect original piece for your decor.


This piece was inspired after a trip to New York for a show. I was outside somewhat people watching while eating lunch and enjoying a bottle of wine when I was caught completely mesmerized by the movement of people on their lunch break. They were bold and determined yet fluid. I painted this the day after we landed.

About the Artist

Ariel Gold (b. 1985) is inspired by natural landscapes and the energy and light contained within each place. In each non-representational abstract, Gold layers the paint so that it catches the light differently throughout the day allowing the piece to transform based on the angle it is viewed. Heavy texture and color add compositional depth to entice the viewer to approach her pieces in an attempt to discover how the piece was made and the colors that lie underneath. Originally from the suburbs of Detroit, Michigan now living in San Francisco, California, Gold has exhibited nationally and has been featured in various publications.
