About Carol


Growing up in the sweatshops of the Los Angeles apparel industry with my dysfunctional family has become the thread that flows through the story in my work. Elements dreams, childhood memory, and the materials from the garment manufacturing trade creep into my artwork as a type of redemption, and I see my work as an argument for reality.

My ideas and concepts are like a sarcastic documentation stemming from emotions rather than analytical schemes. My process is mostly instinctual and I risk being bare and vulnerable in my work, incorporating narratives as bits of paradoxical truths that reveal the psychological angst and trepidation I wrestle with. For me, art becomes a methodical, visionary activity in which to distract myself from all the bullshit I’ve had to encounter, and a saving grace I use to reconstruct what wasn’t.

Tres amazing!

Fascinating work. I wish all people could channel their childhood pain into something positive and creative like this. Love the mixed media. Though childlike, it has appealing composition and many stories to tell. Interesting web site and blogs by this artist. Check it out.

"incorporating narratives as bits of paradoxical truths that reveal the psychological angst and trepidation I wrestle with"
ummm what?

It reminds me a bit too much of a cuter and softer Basquiat, but there is something there.

I love this!

These works are interesting and visual in that they hold your attention as your eye looks through each piece.

beautiful work carol! these two pieces really incorporate so many elements of your past works so well. i envy the thread with which you sew all our pieces together for a very signature feel and a high recognition factor. very, very nice indeed!

Good job man. Keep dreaming!
