Lives and Works in USA


A new exhibition at Gallery B.A.I.: For Carol LaChiusa, an artist who has exhibited extensively and won numerous honors in her home state of Michigan, watercolor painting, a medium that has engaged her attention since 1971 and which she also teaches, has been well suited to her searching vision. Motivated by a lifelong fascination "with light”, La Chiusa does landscape and outdoor street and city scenes filled with meditative speculations about the phenomena of appearances. La Chiusa showcases her method in a series of watercolors based on visits made to the high desert area near Sedona, Arizona. Having the composition she wants in mind, she develops her paintings from sketches done on the spot and in the studio. La Chiusa directs the tranparency of her colors set off by bold use of white of the paper to recording in appealingly clear and admirably loose descriptions of natural forms and colors the spirit of places many visitors have discovered to have mystical properties.
