Flowers by Carole Freysz Gutierrez, Acrylic on Canvas
36 x 36"
I was born and raised in Switzerland, and currently live and work in Oyster Bay, New York. My early professional training was in Fabric Design at the School of Art in Zurich. I then earned my undergraduate and graduate degrees in Fine Art at New York University. My husband and I lived in Frankfurt, London and in Zurich before moving our family to New York.
My paintings are abstract, layered, and infused with color. In some, I juxtapose different 'worlds' by creating windows that allow entry into deeper layers of the canvas. In others, I generate tension between surface and depth, and between differentiation and integration, yet seek to resolve the seeming polarities through an overall pictorial balance. Differentiation and integration are strong forces within my life and work.
