CAROL SCHWARTZ

CAROL SCHWARTZ Biography

Sculpting mostly in wood, Carol Schwartz uses hundreds of pieces of wood laminated together to construct colorful, larger-than-life human forms. Appearing individually or in couples, their polychromatic, textured surfaces give them a vibrant energy. Their compelling frontal stance is reminiscent of the Ancient Asiatic sculpture that has influenced them.

For the last nine years, Carol has been a sculptor, working in her Union City, NJ studio. Prior to becoming a sculptor, she spent 17 years working as an architectural designer.

Carol Schwartz is a 2007 recipient of the New Jersey State Council on the Arts fellowship in sculpture. She is a graduate of Pratt University and the Art Students League in New York, NY. While at the League, Carol served on the board of directors as Vice President.

CAROL SCHWARTZ Statement

I see present day women as an army of warriors, defining and establishing themselves proudly as women. My women face the world head on. They are large in size and powerful. They are standing on heavy legs that are slightly parted. They will not be manipulated. It is, however, with the softness of a woman that they defiantly meet the world. They are dressed in girly, flirtatious fashion and it does not diminish who they are.

Generally in art, I do not enjoy the explicit, I prefer the suggested. It allows me to think, imagine and participate in a way that I cannot if I am told too much. The people are not posed. They are in normal posture. They are caught at unguarded moments, alone or with someone. They are unaware of their body positions, they are just being themselves. Their weight for the most part is evenly distributed, and there exists no false exaggeration of motion. They are firmly anchored to the ground and to their lives. The finish is kind of a metaphor for how we live our lives, always in a process of growth and change and, sadly, even deterioration. The surfaces of my work reflect that.
