Carol Sears' painting's are streams of consciousness surreal and abstract like automatic drawings. Rich in color, her breakdown in line usage and their free form complexity's are guided by instincts instead of intention. To Sears painting eight to ten hours a day in the studio without any real plan of attack is why her work is not only unique but it is also comforting. Shapes shift and transform the viewer reality into a surrealism, there is no wrong interpretation of Carol's - what you see is what you get (in your mind that is.) Carol doesn't suggest you look at them in any way but you're own. Last month Sears and her husband were gracious enough to let me and Carol's manager, Heidi Johnson into their home. A home filled with art, a backyard of Carol's sculptures, with a Koi Pond filled with fish over decades old. We toured the house discovering massive works that Sears created throughout the years from abstract large sculptural pieces to smaller figurative ones, until entering her home studio filled with available light, views of nature and the sounds of silence within a sanctuary filled with years of creative energy.
