Biography

Carol’s work is a concerted search for the structure of things: taking recognized, existing structures apart and putting them together again. She is currently working with the human body. The human skeleton is the basic structure through which she examines the relationship of human structures to their surroundings. Through dismantling and opposing existing structures new formations are created. Abstraction is part of the process - not trying to hide the origins, rather broadening the possibilities for interpretation. What you see at first glance is not necessarily what it is.
