Musings in Color
Witha Lacuesta Solo Exhibit
February 28 – April 1Lacuesta’s exhibit consist of two series, the first, Cypress Tree Series, was inspired by a recent excursion to the Blue Cypress Conservation area which serves as headwaters for St. Johns River. Witha says that having withstood various weather extremes they stand for persistence, resilience, and grace. They inspire us to strive for the same attributes when facing adversity or solitude. The beauty of these century old trees was deeply moving.
In contrast, her second series, entitled Dancers, conveys a different mood through the serendipitous use of color and shapes as expressed in dynamic abstract watercolors. She says of her work “…my focus is to try to capture the beauty of the world around us and interpret it according to my feelings and sense of being. I would like my viewers to find a pleasant sanctuary in my paintings where they can quietly reflect and discover a sense of peace.”
The exhibit will open on Tuesday, February 28, at Fifth Avenue Art Gallery and will run through April 1.
Lacuesta has studied both in Germany and the United States. She is a member of Fifth Avenue Art Gallery and has been painting for many years.
