Art exhibition of the month at the Piermont public library: in search of a better me
May 30, 2022
For the month of June, the Piermont Library is pleased to present Diana Chelaru: In Search of a Better ME. Chelaru describes the inspiration for the exhibition as follows: “The idea for this exhibition came about when I was organizing my artworks in the studio. Looking at the works I have created so far, I have realized that my style had been influenced by a range of artists and artistic styles, so I decided to display in this exhibition 2 or 3 paintings from my most influential periods.”
Romanian-born painter Diana Chelaru’s paintings are colorful and contemporary interpretations of human emotion. For Chelaru, art is a means of communication. “It’s how I express my thoughts, my hopes, my regrets and my joys,” she says. Although she takes great pleasure in applying paint to canvas, it is the expression of emotions that she finds most important. Chelaru’s style is influenced by Byzantine mosaics as well as Gustav Klimt’s subject matter and use of decorative motifs in his compositions. Each work is created intuitively resulting in paintings that speak to the soul.
