Born in Venezuela, Luisa Duarte is a visual artist and world traveler with extensive ties to Latin America. As an artist with formal training in architecture, Duarte also found early inspiration in the geometric abstraction movement, all of which is loosely referenced in her work. Line and color provide important structural bases for an exploration of themes related to fragility-- understanding fragility as a range of experiences and events that trigger meaningful change and growth. She engages with these themes through a variety of techniques and mediums, which include monotypes,digital art and objects.
Luisa Duarte lives in Houston, where she shares a home with her husband and two dogs and welcomes visitors to her studio by appointment.
