Luce Artist Biography

Lidya Buzio combines her training as a painter and ceramist to create her slab-built pots painted with scenes of city buildings. The dry appearance and soft colors of her illustrations evoke Italian Renaissance frescoes as well as her roots in Uruguay. Buzio began to focus on rooftop scenes after moving to New York City in the late 1960s, and although her environment changed, her interest in creating an illusion of space and a harmony between the pot and painting did not diminish.
