WellerOn Thursday, August 26, 2010 Carlsbadistan’s Ivanffy-Uhler Gallery will be hosting an opening reception for artiest Susan Weller.

Weller’s paintings are both reflections of her life spent near the ocean and of her travels in Europe. Weller lives and works in Laguna Beach and in Verona, Italy, in a 12th century palazzo, where she is inspired by the country’s rich cultural and architectural history. Art critic Roberta Carasso, Ph.D., says, “The artist is drawn to generations of history embedded in the facades” of ancient buildings. “Layers of generational narratives, each with its own mystical essence, find their way into her art.”

Those who enjoy the kind of art that hangs in the lobbies of some of the world’s largest corporations will not want to miss this.

Weller’s paintings are both reflections of her life spent near the ocean and of her travels in Europe. Weller lives and works in Laguna Beach and in Verona, Italy, in a 12th century palazzo, where she is inspired by the country’s rich cultural and architectural history. Art critic Roberta Carasso, Ph.D., says, “The artist is drawn to generations of history embedded in the facades” of ancient buildings. “Layers of generational narratives, each with its own mystical essence, find their way into her art.”

Italian art critic Vera Meneguzzo describes her art as “archaeological containers of collective memory,” while Jean S.M. Willette, Ph.D., says, “For Susan Weller, the painting is a place where peace is found, where a center can be created.” Her work is “silent and calm like some of the works by American masters of Abstract Expressionism that Susan Weller has so admired, Rothko above all,” according to critic Camilla Bertoni.

Weller’s work is in numerous corporate and private collections including the American Embassy in Singapore, the American Consulate in Hong Kong, Adobe Systems, Charles Schwab & Co., Hewlett Packard, Kaiser Permanente, Macy’s, Merrill Lynch, Hotel Monaco (Seattle) and Palomar Hotel (Dallas).
