Di Chiara Blends Old And New, March 29 2008

Angelica Di Chiara-Hardin paints memories of her growing-up years in picturesque Italy and visits to many places in Europe.

"I was a wild child," she said, "I had to explore."

When she was young, she decided that languages and art would be her future. "Well actually, people are my first love, I love to mingle and learn about them." Languages and art are her way of connecting with people.

Artists Profiles 2006 Emerging Artist, Angelica Di Chiara

Emerging Artist: Angelica Di Chiara-Hardin, December 2006
Day job: Artist.

Influences: Italian and Dutch masters including Michelangelo Buonarroti, Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, Jan Vermeer and Rembrandt van Rijn.

Art form: Representational acrylic paintings, with an Italian flavor (buildings, fruit and wine bottles). "I actually love still life with a touch of a landscape background," Di Chiara-Hardin says.

.........“Painting is like music. It takes a lot of talent and lots of practice,” the mostly self-taught painter told me with an Italian accent that had my attention. Prior to moving to the U.S. in the early 80’s, she’d traveled extensively throughout Italy and during our interview mentioned a fondness for Venice (a locale she enjoys painting) several times. “The water is so soothing and quiet – sciacqettio!
