Carol Simon doesn’t paint or create with preconceived ideas. She is spontaneous and uses her intuition as her guide. Carol experiments with different mixtures of colors and textures and layers the surface until she feels the design is complete
Carol Simon’s newest works are created by pouring alcohol inks onto Plexiglas panels and adjusting the panels to blend and spread the ink into unique patterns. The painting technique involves a reverse painting style, where the first color that is poured is the first the viewer sees. Though a certain amount of planning goes into the process, serendipity also plays a large part in the final design. This sense of serendipity shines from the resulting works, as well as a sense of freedom and even delight that inspired the creative process. The Plexiglas panels are designed to rest a short distance from the wall, allowing light to play through the painting and to draw a second image of its own to scintillate behind the first.
Carol’s paintings are vibrant with color and light, and she wants viewers to experience this vibrancy, as well as the freedom and joy inherent in the creation of the works.
