This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following, submitted January 2005, is from John Gullis, husband of the artist.


Gloria Julow Gillis was born March 13, 1923 in St. Louis, the daughter of Roy and Ruth Skinner Julow. She studied art at Washington University in St. Louis for over three years. Among her teachers were Fred Conway, a well-known and much loved St. Louis artist, and Philip Guston, later a prominent figure in the New York art scene. She also studied at the Art Students Leage in New York. She paints in oil using a pastel knife.

Since about 2001, Gloria Julow Gillis has used her Cubist approach to create paintings that are accurate representations of people and at the same time have the dramatic interest and authority of Cubism. Many persons find these paintings a joy to behold.

The artist says: "I'm interested in paradoxes. The color in the background is expected to be dark. I might make this color very bright. That makes a puzzle for me. What really happens that the puzzle structures the painting. I am not painting something seen. The essential painting, which I saw in my mind's eye, doesn't change. Yet because of the sense of pardox and puzzle, the painting is evolving all the time I am working on it"
