Laurie Zeszut
Persimmons and Blue Jays



Garden wonder of Persimmons and Blue Jays, acrylic on paper. Image 30"H x 44"W. Signed Zeszut '89 lower right. UNFRAMED. *(We do have the original light natural Maple wood frame which needs a plastic connector replaced and assembled if the buyer would like it on request* "last image in que"). Exuberant and vivid, the art of Laurie Zeszut captures first the eye and then the imagination. Perspective varies as objects freely careen across the surface. The seemingly staid hints of animation; the conservative accents dance with new patterns and colors, breaking the confines of the expected and anticipated. With work as inspired as that of Matisse or Picasso, it is surprising to find that Zeszut is actually a self-taught painter. Claiming that her style is the outcome of her need to work between the interruptions which are attendant to being a parent juggling a career, the resultant paintings are spontaneous and confident. Beginning with a chalk sketch on black paper, the artist next fills in the defined areas with imaginative and adventurous combinations of colors and designs. The components and architecture of the scenes are skewed with exaggerated perspective. The excitement of Zeszut's work is captivating. One cannot help being cheered by the sprawling liveliness of the art presented. Earning accolades and award, the art of Laurie Zeszut is powerful yet friendly, brilliant but not harsh, and active while still relaxing. The unique combinations of elements make Laurie Zeszut one of today's most exciting contemporary artists-sure to continue to catch the eye of collectors worldwide. Zeszut's early works - she calls them "decorative little celebrations of life" - were bright, colorful slices of life, often interiors of festive rooms and parlors festooned with flowers and whimsically rendered furniture. In 1989, she did her part in the post-earthquake recovery of downtown Santa Cruz by painting a large mural on a 130-foot plywood panel near the top of the largely destroyed Pacific Garden Mall. Not one accustomed to calling attention to herself, Zeszut painted "Butterfly Girl" in the early morning hours, often leaving later visitors wondering about the artist. The mural portrayed a bright and richly fecund garden scene, even incorporating the No Parking signs put on the panel the day before she was set to begin. In that prior life, Zeszut's work hung in galleries and she was commissioned to do several murals, book illustrations and design projects. All the while, she was rearing four children at her beautiful Happy Valley home.
