Dolores Poacelli
Art Studio in the Italian Market in Phila.

Artist Statement:

I always say - Relationships are never easy, especially those between color, shape, texture and space. No matter what medium I use, everything from aluminum to cardboard I try to create a tension in each piece. The Relationship of the work to the viewer hopefully connects the universal to the personal.

I have studied at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and Fleisher Art Memorial, and have been a graphic designer for many years.
