Carroll, L.A.

My paintings begin with only a simple idea, and are painted over an extended period of time to allow the image to unfold. There are multiple layers of paint, meaning and symbolism.   The use of gold in each painting is a nod to early church icon paintings* and the Japanese art of Kintsugi**. Words are then hand lettered around the perimeter of some pieces.  The images in the artwork allude to water, wheat, wings, blossoming, grace, restoration and a conversation with the divine.  * Early church icon paintings- the image was not merely ‘painted’ it was ‘written’ **Kintsugi- The Japanese Art of repairing broken things with gold, celebrating the idea that it is more beautiful for the journey.  Works on display at Moon Over Water Gallery in Rockport, TX
