Lawrence Chvotzkin Artist Bio:
I am a painter working in watercolor and ink for about fifty years. I was born and raised in Pennsylvania and then migrated south to Florida for the early part of my career. Inspirations for my work are the lush, organic colors of Alphonse Mucha and the translucent, intricate designs of Louis Tiffany. Culturally my work is influenced by the circular symbolism of Eastern Europe, the earthen tapestries of the Middle East, and the bright ornamental styles of Asia. I moved to New Mexico in the mid 1990’s and enjoy experimenting with Southwestern and Native American symbols and themes. Although I've painted a variety of subjects over the years, the visual richness of my work is more prominent than any single representational image. Subject matter is secondary and serves only as a framework and a vehicle for my patterns.
