Chiarina Loggia is an award winning artist living in Victoria, BC, Canada. Painter, printmaker, poet – her art is a lyrical dance of imagery and words on a voyage of discovery, destination unknown.
“My art is primarily about communication. One of the great joys of making art is making connections with other people through it, often by finding meaning in the work that is both unintended and yet surprisingly insightful. When creating art my ultimate goal is to produce works that I hope will resonate deeply with the viewer and elicit an emotional response which will encourage reflection and open dialogue and understanding between people.
My inspiration comes from the relationships and experiences in my life. Meditations on love, loss, passion and compassion abound in my work. Places I have lived, especially Japan, have left their indelible mark and developed my aesthetic sensibilities.
I am continually attempting to push boundaries in my art, delving into subjects and ideas that take me out of my comfort zone. Self portraits are the most personal, challenging and intimidating artworks I feel I can do. Through these and other figurative studies I strive to express something universal in the personal.”

Chiarina’s art is both sensuous and evocative. Her images speak to the observer through the subtle eloquence of gesture and posture. I find her artwork poignant and beautiful!
Merci beaucoup, Claude, for the lovely compliments on my work. They are most appreciated. All the best to you.
Kevin, your words are as eloquent as you find my work to be. Thank you so much for the kind words and the support of my artwork. See you in my workshop soon!
Chiarina Loggia, with every piece of art she creates, invites one into a world of intriguing mysteries which slowly reveal their truths to each person who has the pleasure in viewing her creations; especially, when viewing her work live in a gallery! The impression one is left with is that her work is speaking to you …and you alone! And interestingly, her art never fails to connect in some kind of secret place, within deeply, which brings meaning to everyday life around one. And yet, with each observer, that meaning is different and personal. I’ve yet to view her art and not learn something about myself that has made me smile…and often, smile well after having viewed her work. Her art never stops speaking. An amazing woman and an amazing artist!! Chiarina Loggia is destined to become one of the world’s eminent artists recognized for her incredible ability to capture meaningful moments of life embodied in timeless prints of beauty!! Mark my words! Check out this up and coming artist and let her work speak to you too!!
Randy, thank you so much for your incredibly kind observations. Having our artwork touch someone deeply is what I think all artists aspire to, and when it happens it is very affirming, humbling and inspiring in return.
