Since 2007, she has been working on a series of large-scale metal sculptures that symbolically represent the root systems of various plants. My sculptures are site-specific or site-responsive; at times, I work from the roots themselves, which I dig out of the earth; other times, I photograph, copy, or draw roots as the basis for my work. I try to uncover the hidden beauty of roots, exploring the relationship between what grows above the ground and the invisible parts below of various root systems. My sculptures reveal what nature prefers to conceal. My wish is to uncover and discover roots even when they are hidden, indeed especially when they are hidden.

About Galleria Ca’ d’Oro

Galleria Ca’ d’Oro was established in 1970 in Rome by Antonio Porcella, the son of Amadore Porcella, one of the most notable art critics of his time, who wrote for L’Osservatore Romano, the newspaper of Vatican City.  Amadore was also the grandson of Alpinolo Porcella, a personal friend ofrecognized Italian masters, including Filippo de Pisis and Giorgio de Chirico.  Galleria Ca’ d’Oro is viewed as one of Rome’s leading contemporary art galleries and is located on the historic Via del Babuino.  Antonio remains active in the art world and is a current member of the de Chirico Foundation in Rome.
Gloria Porcella, Antonio’s daughter and fourth generation Porcella to work in the art business, began working alongside her father in Galleria Ca’ d’Oro Rome twenty years ago and also began managing the gallery’s daily operations.  In 2010, she realized her vision to bring the gallery to the U.S., opening in Miami with the intent to introduce more contemporary Italian art to the U.S. audience.  Shortly after establishing Galleria Ca’ d’Oro Miami, she staged the highly-acclaimed exhibit, “Mona Lisa Unveiled” at Miami’s Freedom Tower, in coordination with the city of Margherita di Savoia and the Museo Ideale Leonardo da Vinci in Florence, Italy. Working with the world-renowned Cracking Art Group, Gloria also coordinated the worldwide tour of the “REGeneration Art Project,” first in Miami during the 2010 Art Basel Miami Beach, then at the 2011 Venice Biennale and concluding in 2014 in Central Park in New York.  She also coordinate “Homage to de Chirico” in New York, Los Angeles and Miami.  And, she organized a tribute exhibit to Pope John Paul II celebrating the 25th anniversary of his papacy with the ”Madonna in Contemporary Art” at the European Parliament in Brussels and the Pantheon in Rome.   Gloria was raised in Rome, but studied at San Diego State University before returning to Rome where she assumed an advisory position for the City of Rome’s Cultural Commission.
After the Miami and Rome branches of the gallery, the month of September 2014 Gloria opened a third branch of the Galleria Ca’ d’Oro in Chelsea – New York City.
