As Carol explains in her artist statement, these free-flowing painterly works are “created by pouring concentrated liquid watercolors. Through this process, I allow the colors to flow and form freely with minimal manipulation.” These paintings are inspired by her job “in diagnostic imaging … as it sparked my desire to use organic principles in the free-flowing watercolors. The processes that I use help me accept and release the feelings that I experience at work when my patients receive sad news. … Life is something we often take for granted. Memento mori, a Latin phrase meaning ‘remember you must die,’ is a reflection on mortality. Likewise, this exhibit hopes to remind visitors that life is fleeting and, in doing so, seeks to inspire them to really live.”
