Artist Statement

 

The human figure is a fascinating landscape of texture, light, form, and movement. It is also politicized, stigmatized, and weaponized. It holds our emotions, it is both heavy and light, it is fragile and rock solid. My fascination with creating representations of the figure, specifically  the female bodied form, grew out of discomfort with my own body. Body dysmorphia, shaming, anorexia, self-mutilation, drug abuse. What evolved from creating art as a representation of my own pain, are works that now honor the beauty of our physical form in whatever form it takes. Acceptance and appreciation for the art I create as just being whatever it wants to be mirrors my own evolution and personal growth. I don’t really give a f*ck if anyone likes it or not. 

 

Bio

 

I am constantly inspired by my mother, an incredible artist and the strongest woman I know. Graduating with an undergraduate degree in General Studies after an excessive amount of credit hours, my artistic education did not follow any sort of traditional track. I fell in love with dark room photography in high school, studied fashion design at the University of Texas, dropped out to work on my mental health. Studied studio art at the University of Houston with a focus on painting and sculpture, dropped out to welcome my son into the world. Finished up at Marshall University after a few semesters studying ceramics. After a decade of sporadic art classes, and random spurts of creativity I am showing my first body of work. The collection itself shows a journey from quick, hesitant, marks on paper to bold and confident finished pieces.

CAROLE BROWN

Carole Brown

Struggling years with the secret of depression, I've poured myself into several creative outlets to get me through dark days. I'm a decorator/designer, artist and gardener. I may not be a face associated with depression but it often finds a way to hide.  I've drawn and painted for many years. I’ve found my love for art again on the "flip side" of depression. I learned to let my art guide me. I look for a message or story to unfold before me.I love the colors and find the process of these finished paintings intriguing.  My art is signed with a bit of silence. I didn’t feel comfortable using my name. My signature for my paintings is a combination of my name written backwards. I then incorporated a backward e. You see the "e", like depression also can be silent and overlooked. I especially embraced the signature as I noticed it resembled an open heart. It was perfect because it was hard for me to heal the wound in my heart caused by depression until I learned to pour my art into it. When you look at my art I hope you see much more than depression. I hope you see beauty, strength courage.Keep up with her creative journey on Facebook @acrylicartbycarole  or at flipsideartbycarole.com
