The recognized works of Chrysoula Lile will be exhibited at the “2011 FOCUS New Jersey”, a state wide juried art exhibition being sponsored by the Art Center of Northern NJ. Lile has been chosen to exhibit two of her exquisite pieces amongst other select artists. The “2011 FOCUS New Jersey” art exhibition will be held November 6th through November 28th, 2011. The Reception and Award ceremony will take place on Sunday November 6th 2:00 - 4:00pm.
The first painting, “Life Within” is a piece depicting the message that everything is possible. Although blossoms are known for their existence in the light, in Lile’s version, they are painted in full bloom in the darkness, a bold representation of life’s ability to exist in the most uninviting of places.
The second painting, “Cluster of Roses” drives home the beauty in diversity, in the coexistence of races and cultures with one another in harmonious ways. Their strengths are brought out most while in “clusters”. The end result being a beautiful array entwined with color.
Chrysoula Lile is a self-taught , Greek born artist who has had a long relationship with painting. Having begun as a child and moved into the field of oil colors by age twelve, she moved to the USA to continue her career at age nineteen.
Lile now works almost entirely with oil paints, accepting commissions for paintings, portraits, and murals, and providing consultations for anyone interested in a project.
She is inspired by nature and its effects, people‘s life stories, children, beauty and disaster. She takes pain and suffering, and gives them new meaning through her art, interpreting her own disappointments and road blocks onto the canvas and transforming them into something beautiful and inspiring.
The Art Center of Northern NJ is located:
250 Center St. New Milford NJ.
