We yearn for stories that capture us and take us to another world filled with possibilities. When conveying a story, the narrator gives the audience a peek into the realities of their world. Stories are not just composed on paper in a dusty journal; they can also take shape through various mediums. Art captures the essence of humanity in its most raw forms. Sue De Chiara is doing something similar with her abstract art, a forum that has turned her into a storyteller.
Born and raised in New York, Sue practiced as a real-estate lawyer for eight years before she started to reconnect with her old passions. Any form of creative art, whether illustrating, graphic designing, or painting, was encouraged in her family. Sue had learned the basics of art when she was a fine arts minor at university and when she took classes in the 90s. Once she took charge of her own life, she drifted away from the legal world and divulged into various artistic forums.
Before she began ‘Sue De Chiara’, she worked as a home decor and lifestyle blogger under the name ‘The Zhush’. In 2017, she began to paint while gaining valuable insight from her art instructor Natasha Karpinskaia. Abstract art, while making no sense to the untrained eye, displays the innermost hidden parts of a person’s being. It reaches its end result in the most mysterious ways. This is precisely what Sue was drawn to and what pushed her to start painting. Now balancing two separate sites dedicated to home decor and abstract art, Sue aims to reach for the stars.
Each color on her canvas has its own narrative and dabbles with the mysteries of life. Despite her recent indulgence in this art form, Sue has gained recognition for her ability to let her paintings speak for themselves. The installation of Sue’s art complements every room in the house. It adds to her vision of growing her home decor business. Abstraction beautifies elements of Sue’s life and adds a sense of comfort, the same comfort we seek in our homes.
While talking to One King Lane, Sue gushed about art and how it radiates a “personal” element that cannot be captured in words. Her artwork is an amalgamation of experiences and ancient myths, allowing her to perfect the art of capturing the right moment on a fitting canvas. In 2017, Sue took charge of her artistic persona, which compelled her to take on a project that has now become a constant source of comfort. Letting her art convey its own story, Sue De Chiara has taken on a task that refreshes the soul.
