ARTIST BIO & STATEMENT
Stamford, CT based artist, Eugenie Diserio makes kinetic abstract paintings with vibrant and muted colors, evocative marks and brushstrokes.
A lifelong painter and visual artist, her work is in juried shows, permanent exhibits and private collections.
Eugenie earned a BFA in Painting from Tyler School of Art, Temple University and an MFA in Fine Arts from Columbia University.
While a graduate student, she co-designed the catalog, "ROOMS" for PS1's inaugural show in Long Island City, a show with 80 artists that "has since become a landmark in the art history of 1970's New York."
After experimenting with conceptual and performance art, she co-formed the seminal 80's art rock bands, Model Citizens, The Dance and Chandra whose music continues to be licensed and sampled in films and recordings today.
In the late 90's, she founded the astrology website Astronet and was named one of Harvard Business School's Top 10 Entrepreneurs of the Year.
From all of her diverse ventures, she has learned to trust and follow intuition during the journey of a creative project.
"The universe is rigged in our favor for resolution. Recognize the signs that are leading you home," she says.
As a devoted Yogi and meditator, Eugenie considers the painting process to be transcendental.
"You lose your sense of time and space and suspend in the present moment and vision.
Ultimately, I hope my paintings create a calming pause for the viewer to refresh and reboot."
