Sue Zola

It’s probably no coincidence that two of America’s most eccentrically exciting and unpredictable directors, David Lynch and Quentin Tarantino, are big fans of glitter artist Sue Zola and have snapped up her work for their art collections. Zola, like Lynch and Tarantino, has created her own unique niche in the art world, one of the only artists dedicated to not only incorporating, but exclusively utilizing, the uber-difficult material of glitter in her pieces. Zola somehow manages to use the fun, shiny, messy, tactile substance to evoke emotion and lovingly, and with dead-on accuracy, recreate the faces and logos of iconic American entertainers and symbolic Pop culture products.
