Private: Carol Forbes

About the Artist:

Carol Forbes is a Peterborough-based painter whose work is abstract, and process driven. Mixing fields of colour with gesture and line, she uses a variety of media to create her evocative compositions. With no prior conception of the finished work, each mark opens new possibilities. She is guided by intuition, a sense of adventure, and a delight in the visceral experience of working with the materials. As a work evolves, the process becomes a delicate integration of spontaneity and restraint. Originally from Nova Scotia, Carol has lived her adult life in the Kawarthas. She studied art at the Haliburton School of Art and Design, after teaching psychology for many years at Fleming College.

“Abstraction is what intrigues me, mostly for its ability to evoke inner connections and responses to colour, shape, and line.” — Carol Forbes
