About Carla Asquini
Carla Asquini’s floral paintings are joyful celebrations of life, like Georgia O'Keefe’s, who had said “When you take a flower in your hand really look at it, it's your world for the moment. I want to give that world to someone else.”
Carla Asquini uses floral subjects to study the relationship between color and form, as well as that of light and shadow. With her deliberate and instinctive brush strokes, Asquini carefully examines the various stages of a flower's lifecycle, not only to render the
naturally beautiful resulting colors, but to call forth the emotions associated with each stage of its development. Budding flowers represent hope, the innocence and the lightness of youth, while brillantly-hued flowers in full bloom recall the sensuality, the confidence, and the power of adulthood.
Likewise, the muted tones of an older bloom signify peacefulness, ease, and the wisdom of old age.
Born in Udine, Italy, Carla Asquini seeks a perfect harmony between inspiration and realization in all of her paintings.
A truly international artist, Asquini completed her artistic training in the United States and has exhibited throughout Europe, China and Dubai.
