The exhibition “Faces”Â at Ricart GalleryÂ features new works by Carolus, known for her paintings whose subject primarily involves human faces. Inspired by Carolusâ€™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.
