Sue De Chiara

Growing up in an artistic family I've always been attracted to creative pursuits. I
find inspiration in various aspects of life - from nature and the human body to
spiritual matters and meditation. Abstraction with its freedom of expression, its
mysterious and unpredictable elements is my favorite mode.
My paintings start with a particular idea and the process itself takes over leading
me in mysterious ways to unknown destinations. Although my paintings are
perfectly abstract, they always contain a narrative, a story to be interpreted by the
Graceful and soft handling of the paint is continually reinforced by a barely visible
yet strong structural element. This dichotomy of soft component and solid
structural foundation creates a unique visual expression, at once subtle and
powerful. The colors I choose are often inspired by the changing seasons of
coastal New England.
