Artist Statement

Foladori Weiss was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina.  She graduated from the School of Fine Arts Priliadiano Pueyrredon and then returned to her first alma mater, the School of Visual Arts Regina Pacis, as the printmaking professor for seven years.  In the 1980s, her delicate paintings and prints were successfully exhibited and sold as part of Argentine movement of "naive painting".  After immigrating into the United States in 1989, she focused on photography resulting in several awards and publications.  In the last five years, she returned to painting at an ever-growing scale.  Her current work has been inspired by the Iznik tiles of Ottoman architecture in Turkey.
