Rin Colabucci - Fall 2007

rin_right Self-taught artist. Born in Hiroshima as a daughter of a Japanese master craftsman, Rin can’t remember a time when she was not surrounded by art. She began backpacking early on and visited or lived in Micronesia, South Asia, USA, Central and South America, Europe, Middle East. Now she lives in San Diego, California. “Her oils focus on the human form dealing with the human condition. Penetrating eyes and vivid colors highlight the symbolism in her work. Her style is not modeled on any particular artist or genre. She gets inspiration from life experiences and feelings. Originality and creativity are the two fundamental essence of her art. rin_left “My work begins with creating the totally chaos on canvas. I let any themes or accidents happen and go. As I continue this process, osmotically imagery begins to emerge. My painting is a result of many layers of thoughts and feelings. For me, painting process is like ‘tuning’ to voices to be heard. I take inspiration from everyday life, things, relationships, beings around me. I observe it and pass it on in my form.” Rin has created poster designs for theater troupes, card designs for Charities (M.S.F., Rashid Paediatric Therapy Center, Dubai Eco etc.), magazine illustrations, mural paintings. Her paintings have been published and bought by numerous collectors in UK, Australia, Switzerland, Japan, France, Germany, Canada, the UAE and the US. Website:www.rincolabucci.com
