Zoe Toscano is an artist and curator who got her degree from CSU Stanislaus in May 2018. Most often, her subject isn’t the human form but her inspiration comes from it. With her smaller scale works she aims normalize sexuality using the human figure or macabre imagery in a satirical and humorous manner. On a large scale she tends to be more attracted to a simple visual image. With that, she can study the complexities and nuances of a simple moment through the process of painting. Artists have a responsibility as advocates of culture, to be intentional, critical, and conscious in what we’re representing. She is proud to have originated the idea for painting classes at the gallery. In her free time, she spends time with her family and travels as much as she can.
