Mercedes Lasarte

Although Born in Argentina Mercedes Lasarte has lived most of her life in the United States and Europe. Mercedes studied drawing and painting at the University Of California (UCLA) and continued her training in visual arts studying in depth The French Impressionist Matisse and German Expressionist Gauguin.
These painters have had a very strong influence on her work till this day. Mercedes was a Passionate traveler and has had the opportunity to study with some of the best teachers, important museums and private collectors in the world.
She believes that art must evolve and transmit emotions and sensations to the viewer which she seems to do very successfully

In Lasarte?s work, we can observe some of the main characteristics of the mentioned painters. As one among other examples, we can refer to the use of colours covering wide areas or flat surfaces which are clearly separated in order that they do not touch or superimpose each other. This technique became known as cloissonnisme at the end of the 19th century as and adopted by some followers of Gauguin. Another characteristic that Mercedes Lasarte has in common with Post-Impressionist painters is the emotional rather than naturalist use of colour. The greens in their different shades, the blues, the yellows of the sun in a brightly illuminated interior, but their purpose is above all to evoke a state of mind, to fix on an almost hypnotic image, a personal experience, a memory, or a longing.
Such longing, or desire, is certainly the main source of Mercedes Lasarte?s artistic inspiration; the desire to be part of the painted scene as if it were real, and to remain there forever, in that garden, close to that sea, with those friends, as in those childhood afternoons that never seemed to end, those memories in which time stops as in a dream... as in a painting.
