Welcome to the Paintings
Maria Foladori Weiss

Foladori Weiss was born in Buenos Aires in 1956. She graduated from the School of Fine Arts Priliadiano Pueyrredon and then was hired by her first alma mater, the School of Visual Arts Regina Pacis, as the printmaking professor for seven years. In the 1980s, her delicate paintings and prints were successfully exhibited and sold as part of Argentine movement of “naive painting”.  After immigrating into the United States in 1989, she focused on photography resulting in several awards and publications.  She returned to painting in 2001 from her studio in Palm Beach County, Florida.

“Painting is painting. Seeing a painting should be an experience of pure feeling, like music. The feelings originate in energy, motion and vibrancy of color and mature through the lessons of the masters of the 20th century. I let my instincts go on each canvas and then organize the elements. No explanation required to know the emotional state of mind.”
