Carole Graslan is represented by Contemporary Collective. Please visit www.contemporarycollective.com to view her portfolio.

Initial inspiration has changed a lot for me due to the fact that my paintings in the beginning were surrealist. I now consider myself to be an abstract painter, inspired by the outer tangible world.

The observation of the world that surrounds me, thoughts, reflections, analysis, concentration and imagination all nurture my inspiration. My paintings convey the free expression of my intuitive and emotional side. Intuitive paintings open up our imagination where mysterious worlds and life forms can evolve, creating a visual language, posing some sense of mystery and forcing the viewer to construct their own ideas. Importance lies in the individuality of each work and the individual viewer's experience. Painting is a state of being and I believe that in the subjective process of painting, I would find my own definition.

 

The complex nature of my work starts out from a great table, where the process of creation begins with the preparation of the canvas using cotton, denim or other fabric. I apply rabbit skin glue or primer in several layers before painting, a process that acquires time between layers and drying. During this process I am already organizing the space, creating different textures to obtain several planes and depth. My chromatic language is wide but I mainly work with oil paint. The application technique is varied, using brushes, spatulas, rags, papers, etc., and applying many thick or diluted layers, according to the concept of the project. My goal is creating reflective and honest work, permitting chance. Driven by an inner force, I explore the very process of painting as I work and rework the canvas in a free search for the essence of things. I activate the picture surface by creating a relationship between form, space, colour and line.
