An exhibition by Clair Koch & Rosa Colón
March 28 - May 3, 2015
Artists’ Reception: April 10th from 6:00 – 8:30 PM
Traits between the artwork of Brazilian artist Clair Koch and Colombian artist Rosa Colón revolve around a very intense love for nature, its forms, and all of the interwoven spiritual connections. For artist Clair Koch, the connection is achieved through meditation and inner discover; for artist and art educator Rosa Colón, long nature walks and observation to her surroundings inspire her. Both artists will exhibit their new paintings in both oil and collages from recycled materials, pressed flowers and leaves.
About Artist Clair Koch:

Clair is a native of Rio Grande do Sul, in Brazil. In her Artist Statement, Clair explains:" Brazilians embody a distinctive spirit that is reflective of their love for life and the intricate relationships within the elements of that spirit. In my work, I express my own perspective of the beauty of these intricate but simple associations. Sometimes it is difficult to distinguish fantasy from reality. However, not wanting to be imprisoned by form or substance, it is through my labyrinthine of color and sensation that I hope to echo that exciting resonance of the vibrations from within.” To learn more about artist Clair Koch, visit: www.clairkoch.com
