About the Artist:

Carol Forbes is a Peterborough based 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 undertaking courses of study in therapeutic counselling. Her work reflects her compelling interest in the multifold and often contradictory experiences of ‘self’.

“Moving paint across a surface is a visceral practice for me: a way of getting to what I call ‘the other place’ where I lose track of time and space. Abstraction is what intrigues me, mostly for its ability to evoke inner connections to form, colour, and line.” — Carol Forbes
