Shifting Landscape Echoes
“Shifting Landscape Echoes” features 8 abstract landscape paintings by the Brooklyn based artist Sophia Chizuco. In the paintings presented, Chizuco transforms cherished memories, like shining sunlight and twinkling stars, into minimalistic geometric shapes, such as circles and lines. The circular forms, inspired by the Zen concept of Enso, hold deep significance for her, representing life, sunlight, spirit, peace, infinity, and continuity. These symbols encapsulate the essence of her art.
The exhibition features the two landscapes with lines in oil color and six square pieces with circles in acrylic, including representations of the four seasons, “blooming,” “waterfall,” “colored mountains,” and “falling night.” Through her works, Chizuco aspires to ignite conversations, raise awareness, and cultivate a deeper appreciation for the delicate balance between humanity and the natural world. By inviting viewers to immerse themselves in multisensory encounters and thought-provoking narratives, she strives to foster a sense of connections and inspire positive change in our collective consciousness.
