Argentinian Contemporary

Born in Argentina. During the seventies she moved to Boston, then relocated to Los Angeles where she attended UCLA, and Otis Parson’s Art School. She continued her studies in fine arts by studying deeply the technique of the French Impressionists and the German Expressionists. Gauguin and Matisse would be her favorite painters and they would make a definite influence in the development of her pictorial technique: The application of color over huge, monochromatic, and differenced surfaces. This technique, “Cloisonnisme,” was adopted by some of Gauguin’s followers during the 19th century.

Mercedes Lasarte’s colors transmit a state of wellbeing and happiness. The green and the blues mix the yellows in an harmonic symphony of color, creating an hypnotic image, a unique experience, an unexplainable wish.
