For Quia Z. Atkinson, artist and owner of the QZ Design and style Gallery, Tallahassee is house.

As she goes from station to station in her garage transformed to artwork studio, she can take joy in pouring technicolor liquid acrylics and resins across her canvas. The flow of paint redirected across the clean, shiny surfaces resembles the fluidity Atkinson felt even though transferring all over as a boy or girl.

The two her dad and mom served as U.S. Marines, which suggests Atkinson grew up calling Virginia, South Carolina, New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois and Norway home for a time.

Her paintings in the “In Flux” show at the Artport Gallery replicate on this nomadic upbringing through the work’s experimental, flowing procedures.

“Moving all around taught me resilience as a child,” claims Atkinson. “You have to be capable to adapt and fulfill new close friends quickly. It also opens you up to distinct cultures, people today, and ways of everyday living, and I’m grateful for that. I imagine that’s shown in my artwork.” 

Out of the numerous states and nations Atkinson lived in, Rabat, Morocco, was by much her favored. She can vividly recall the vibrancy of Moroccan lifestyle, from purchasing in the marketplaces loaded with rich spices, meats, bejeweled scarves, and materials, to admiring the intricate trellis patterns and basket weaving finished by the girls in the metropolis.
