The Art Work of Felix Diclo

Felix Diclo, a fine arts artist born in the Dominican Republic, studied techniques of drawing and colors at the National University of Pedro Henriquez Urena. Diclo’s artwork explores a world created of colors, light, and aesthetic dialogues that remarkably reflects the human condition. His oil on canvas pictorial world projects reflections of light that bring us to discover fading images being absorbed by shadows, things as simple as the beauty of the human body, the colored flames that populate New England in autumn, as well as the strong force of the abstract composition. Diclo’s artwork portrays the transformation of his perception of the outside world and his own internal experience captured on canvas, like a giant colored umbrella whose outburst unchains the viewer’s astonishment. Felix Diclo currently resides in Providence, Rhode Island. All are cordially invited to the opening reception on Thursday, February 8th 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. Refreshments will be served.

During Richard Thompson’s concert celebrating the Narrows’ 5th anniversary he sang a song about loving ‘smart women.’ Lucy, we suggest, falls into that category, since she has a doctorate in psychology. But, of course, she won’t be counseling during the show! Just playing some of the songs that have earned her a strong and dedicated legion of fans.
