About Gertrude Levy

Levy was initially influenced by Matisse and the Fauves; both for appreciation of line and manipulation of color. Her current influences are Bonnard and the Nabis and their Japanese influence of picture plane and framing. Levy has casually studied figure drawing as well as painting at several art programs including the San Francisco Art Institute. Additionally, she was a practicing architect for twenty years and painted the first utility art box in San Jose.

In her work, Levy has expanded upon on how different colors influence perception by studying and applying how different views, perspectives or framings influence perspectives. Her work is identified by its strong use of color and texture and maybe a little wit.
