About the Artist:

Carol Forbes is a Peterborough painter whose work is abstract and process-driven. She studied art at the Haliburton School of Art and Design after teaching psychology at Fleming College and studying therapeutic counselling.

Moving materials across a surface is a visceral and intuitive practice for Carol, as she mixes fields of colour with gestural marks. There is no predetermined concept or vision. As a work evolves, the process becomes a delicate integration of spontaneity and restraint. Carol responds to what emerges in a series of exploratory encounters until a personal aesthetic is achieved.

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