Faces by Carolus

Miami, FL (April 2013) – Ricart Gallery’s latest exhibition called Faces, is a collection of new paintings by French born and Miami local artist Carolus opening Saturday, April 12th from 6-10pm.

The exhibition Faces features new works by Carolus, known for her paintings whose subject primarily involves human faces. Inspired by Carolus’s international travels, she starts with a background color and then allows a face to come alive onto the canvas. As her faces evolve so does the medium with an added element of texture to the paintings for this exhibition. The mixed media artworks are created using cardboard instead of painting brushes. Carolus is the only known artist to paint with this innovative technique that she discovered while living abroad finding that brushes and other materials were costly and hard to come by.

“I cannot change my subject but I can change my technique. The faces and I communicate and the exchange further inspires their evolution,” explains Carolus.
In addition there will be featured works including photographs by Italian photographer Tiziano Magni and paintings by Indonesian artist I Wayan Sudarsana Yansen.
