Opening Reception: June 8th, 2019 from 12 PM - 6 PM
Eckert Fine Art is pleased to present Two Visions/Two Worlds: The Art of Carolyn Plochmann and Chizuru Morii Kaplan. This captivating show features two artists born decades apart and in different parts of the world who found their voice through art. Both women are inspirational and universal in their haunting imagery. Though working in different mediums they produce intensely personal art that delights the eye and spirit.
Carolyn Plochmann was born in Toledo, Ohio and received her BA from University of Toledo and MFA from University of Iowa in 1949. Her richly painted art work has been exhibited in major museums around the country and she was represented for years by the prestigious Kennedy Gallery in NYC. R. Buckminster Fuller summed it up best: Encountering the work of Carolyn Plochmann, we come to a window thrown open for us by fresh wisdom. It is a window through which we glimpse something new, significant and universal.
Chizuru Morii Kaplan is Japanese born and after studying architecture and interior design in Tokyo, worked as a renderer for the likes of I.M Pei and Edward Larrabbe Barnes. In 2007 she decided to become an artist and studied watercolor at the Art Students League in NYC. Chizuru has won numerous awards around the world and been hailed by critic Sarah Stickley of Watercolor Artist Magazine: Painting from dark to light with nary a hard edge in sight. Chizuru Morii Kaplan breaks tradition to bring out the best qualities of watercolor in her surprisingly detailed architectural paintings.
