About the artist
Bio: Eugenie Diserio makes kinetic, contemplative abstract paintings with vibrant and muted color juxtapositions, sensuous brushstrokes, evocative marks, and personal calligraphy. A life long painter and visual artist, her work is in juried shows, permanent exhibits and private collections. She studied at Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, earned a BFA from Tyler School of Art, Temple University and an MFA from Columbia University. While a graduate student, she co-designed the catalog "Rooms," for the inaugural show in what was to become MoMA PS1 in Long Island City, 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. With her persona Genie Easy, she was named an Internet content pioneer, a "Dot-Com Diva" and 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 finding resolution. Recognize the signs that are leading you home." she says. As a dedicated Yogi, 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 pause for the viewer to refresh and reboot." Eugenie Diserio lives and works in Stamford, Connecticut, USA.
