Dialogue of Four Chairs – The Four Elements

Dialogue of Four Chairs

Lisa Ficarelli-Halpern

My interpretation is to create a suite of four chairs whose theme embodies the spirit of collaboration in nature. Each chair will represent one of the four life sustaining and affirming elements: air, water, fire, and earth. These elements nourish and support each other. The tone of the studio will reflect this relationship. Since I am a painter, I have chosen the medium of acrylic paint on canvas to create the four chairs in a two-dimensional format. The chair paintings reflect the colors, motifs, and feelings of the four elements.
