Autumn Equinox: Collective Visions in Abstraction and Figuration
September 21 – October 11, 2018
Reception: Thursday, September 27, 2018 6-8 PM

Using experimental processes and a saturated palette, Carol Carpenter creates vivid works of organic abstract art. Though often painting traditional-feeling compositions like landscapes and still lifes, Carpenter's Belle Époque style and her floral elaborations lend her work a unique abstract quality. While her paintings often tackle familiar subject matter, Carpenter's use of unusually rich colors sets her depictions apart, approaching not only Modern art movements, but also referencing the fantastic qualities of Romantic landscape painters like J.M.W. Turner. 

Carpenter's distinctive approach, which involves establishing an abstract layer of paint beneath the final painting, is noteworthy for the organic qualities it imparts upon her paintings. In the process of elaborating on the natural images from the paint splatters, Carpenter creates new perspectives on natural beauty, drawing not just from her own perspectives, but on nature's physical processes and the collusion of chance and technological innovation. These blurred lines in Carpenter's work, whether physical or metaphorical, result in particularly sensual paintings, with textures, brushstrokes, and colors flowing together in fantastic and dreamlike ways.

Born in Baltimore, Carpenter currently lives and works in Columbia, Maryland.
