Angiola Churchill is Professor Emeritus of the University of New York and former president of the Department of Arts and Crafts, 1975-2005. She was the founder / director of the Art Program of the New York University in Venice, Italy - 1974-2006; and co-director of ICASA, the International Center for Advanced Studies in Art, 1970-1980. He embarked on a successful career as an artist performing both in the United States and abroad. Since 1953, he has had 60 solo exhibitions in America and elsewhere in prestigious venues such as the Palazzo Fortuny Museum, Venice, Italy; Palazzo dei Diamanti, Ferrara, Italy; Palazzo Reale, Naples, Italy; Neuberger Museum of Art, State University of New York, Purchase, New York. In addition, he has participated in more than 54 group exhibitions, biennials and art fairs. One of the methods chosen by Churchill are monumental installations performed on paper. These environments composed of wavy and natural shapes inspire rhythmic patterns. Their layered parts that hang freely in space are infused with direct and diffused light that creates opaque and transparent passages and a play of light and shadow effects. The metaphor of the garden was at the center of this work, giving rise to a series of idyllic spaces for contemplation and meditation. Another genre pursued by Churchill using paper is again influenced by drawings from nature and a sophisticated and profound knowledge of the various aspects and direction of modernist art, in particular abstraction. These were shown in a way that exploits the transparent qualities of his media as well as in a series that takes up entire walls. In general, Churchill earned duel distinctions in pursuing separate professional careers in the academic and artist fields. For both occupations, he brought his unique skills of organization and development, as well as his individual ways of thinking creative and imaginative
