Artist Rosemary Mazzola, the resident exhibitor for April at Marco's Blue Mangrove Gallery, talks about her styles and influences Watch »
It may just be that artist Rosemary Mazzola is the essence of art imitating life.
Cheerful and brightly dressed on her opening night as the April resident artist at the Blue Mangrove Gallery in the Town Center, Mazzola sums up her approach to art by saying she tries to put “feelings of wow” in her fingers.
“My joy is creating work rich in vibrant color and abstract style, combined with impressionism,” she says. “I want to capture a moment in time in each painting, and evoke an emotional response in all viewers.”
Mazzola says she usually paints in oil on canvas from subjects that inspire her in nature or people in real life.
Boston-bred Mazzola adds she has had a lifelong interest in art, attending the Massachusetts College of Art, living in the French West Indies and the south of France in the 1990s, and now basing herself in Naples — which she says provides her with “great joy and inspiration.”
