ARTIST INFO

 

About 

 

Born in Weymouth, Massachusetts, Terry Ekasala graduated from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, Florida. In 1983, she set up her first studio at the Clay Hotel and Youth Hostel on Espanola Way in Miami Beach, a broken down palace of art deco dreams. Ekasala became a member of the Artifacts Art Group, which staged weekly events at Miami’s Fire and Ice nightclub. She was also part of a group of graffiti artists whose work on abandoned buildings was featured in the Miami Herald and as background in major advertising campaigns.  

  

In 1987, Ekasala moved to Paris and eventually set up a studio in Belleville, the colorful 20th Arrondissement at La Forge where she was part of a diverse artistic community that organized the first artist squat or reclaimed studio space to become legal in Paris. During this time, her style underwent numerous changes, moving from figurative to abstract, and she exhibited widely in Paris, Berlin, and New York.  

  

In 2001, Ekasala moved to Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom. In Vermont, she has exhibited work at Catamount Arts in St. Johnsbury, Hall Art Foundation in Reading, and the Burlington Center for the Arts (BAC). She has also shown work at the Metalstone Gallery in New York City, Matter & Light in Boston, and in 2019, the Piermarq Gallery in Sydney, Australia.  

  

Ekasala’s work is in numerous private collections. She resides with her family in East Burke, Vermont and creates large and small abstract paintings in what she calls her dream studio looking out over a nearby mountainside.
