Carol Strause FitzSimonds
I find my inspiration in ordinary places, common objects and the human form. Because of their natural beauty or intrinsic simplicity, images call to me. I try and tell their stories in line and color, in shadow and light. With the emergence of the book as an “art form,” incorporating my prints into this format has added yet another direction in concept and presentation for my work. Suddenly touch is now linked to look and see. As a form, the book begs to be touched, to be opened - making individual prints part of a larger, sculptural work.
