Michele Brunschvig Dariele’s Abstract Acrylics at Agora Gallery

Michele Brunschvig Dariele’s abstract acrylics on canvas evoke an array of powerful emotions.

Michele Brunschvig Dariele Little Pools Of Joy

Some of her work is rhythmically geometric and controlled, yet it exudes a vibrancy that immediately connects with viewers; other works abandon this geometry, portraying potent emotional turmoil through energetic brushstrokes and a distinct lack of rigidity. Brunschvig Dariele uses color judiciously, and the subtle interplay between the color palette and the neutral tones in each piece deeply affects the emotional landscape each painting reveals. “It is my intent to nurture the soul and spirit through some of my paintings and bring a sense of order, humor or release to the onlooker,” she explains.

Music and movement have a profound influence on her painting; even as a child, she felt that art was linked to music, and that connection carries on to this day. Originally a figurative painter, Brunschvig Dariele is constantly excited about the freedom that is found in abstraction. She was born in Switzerland, moved to New York, where she began her artistic journey, and currently lives in Florida.

About the Exhibition

This February, Agora Gallery is proud to present two exhibitions that will warm your heart and touch your soul, bringing light and life to the winter days. Idiosyncratic Expressions delves into the diverse and diverting nature of perception and individual expression and awareness. Uniting a very personal approach to human nature and the world around us with an ability to expose the shared understanding that binds us together, these works both inspire and celebrate the variety of existence and the power of vision. In Degrees of Abstraction, the audience will be introduced to the work of artists who are constantly reworking the boundaries and borders of skill and possibility. Lively, innovative impressions of both reality and inner life take the potential of visual expression to a whole new level.
February is also Heart Month and to celebrate we’re doing something a little special. Some of the artists in this exhibition have created artwork especially for the occasion. The entire sales proceeds from the sales of these particular pieces of art will be donated to the Children’s Heart Foundation.
The exhibitions open on February 7, 2013 and run until February 27, 2013. The opening reception will take place on the evening of Thursday February 7, 6-8 pm. Entrance is free and all art enthusiasts are warmly welcomed to attend and meet some of the artists responsible for creating these remarkable works of art.
