Eunice LaFate works in contemporary, traditional, and folk art styles. Her more traditional pieces present the expansive Caribbean and American landscapes as well as bursts of tropical foliage, resplendent sunrises, radiant sunsets. The uniqueness of her approach is in her ability to portray the grace of the land, the power of a blossom, or the boldness of the sun through the combination of naked color and pure form. Her descriptive brushstrokes add a compelling immediacy to the work. Her folk art pieces showcase her ability to imbue essential line and form with vibrant color to depict the universal meaning that resides at the heart of everyday experience…, the spirit that lies at the core of our temporal existence.
