Naoko Paluszak
Lawrenceville, Georgia

Naoko Paluszak began her career by studying graphic design in Tokyo, followed by several years working as a designer, before switching to oil painting. Now located in the United States, Naoko continues to develop her style through different series of paintings that have varying degrees of abstraction. By bridging representational with non-representational forms, the artist seeks to stir personal memories and spark new narratives. “Art is about having a sense of mystery and drama,” she says. Naoko is also passionate about color. She mixes her paints based on the intuitive emotions that different colors can trigger within the viewer, and within herself.

Thank you, Mr.Goldman. It is so nice of you to send me the photo and such a nice, warm comment. I am so happy and honored that my painting has found an owner who's having a special meaning toward the image and it will be cherished for years to come. Lucky me and lucky Henrietta!! :)

The colors in this work provided the splash that I was looking to achieve in the master bedroom of a new home that is all done in earth tones, including gold, so the hem of this angel's dress pulls it all together. thank you Naoko!

After a divorce left me with an empty house, I decided that instead of filling it quickly with "stuff," I would fill it slowly with beautiful, meaning things. This was one of the first things I purchased. I adore my angel. She is lovely and very special to me.

W Schermerhorn 5/13/2014 | 10:14 AM
