"Pool Chill" Abstract oil painting of a woman in a white swimsuit in a blue pool

About

Abstract oil painting of a woman in a white swimsuit in a blue pool. "I throw myself into the water almost every day- it grounds me, the body floats and the mind drifts. The "Swimmer series" has followed me over the years, resurfacing and evolving. Presently I'm working on wood, I'm intrigued by wood grain swirling like water and how that ground moves through the swimmer's form”. Carol graduated from the Art Center College of Design in painting. For some 20 years she split her time between her loft in downtown LA and a beach bungalow in Hawaii- satisfying a passion for culture and the ocean's pull. In LA she painted backdrops and billboards and parlayed these skills to create over 100 large public and corporate commissions internationally: Ocean Patterns is a 220 ft installation at the Honolulu Airport and this year found her in a glasmalerei in Germany, creating Trigger Picasso Energy, a 48 ft. stained glass/ photovoltaic solar canopy for the Hawaii State Art Museum Sculpture Garden. Water flows through all her work, large and small. ..."I jump around a lot, every big commission is uncharted territory: I dive in and give it a whirl. I return to my studio refreshed and renewed and swim in that feeling”.
