Carole Urban

Throurough her work, Carole is making a research work about daydream. By colors and a movement, she draws a totally imaginary universe, as children do to play. In complete carefreeness, each born painting correspond to a new world under construction, with its own rules and particuliar operation. They constitute utopian unrealities.

Carole’s work is firstly an immersive path through colors. Her paintings just like her photos are an invitation to contemplation. Their intention is deeply positive. Through a blur, a movement, a shape, the audience is irresistibly taken away in their own imagination. The goal is to get back the capacity to feel a pure joy that fills all the space, to reach plenitude.

To get the approach to match the result, Carole needs to free herself from her apprehensions and let the matter, the touch and the color guide her. She experiments with different types of supports and mediums. She first fell for photography and then added painting.In this approach, the support is her ally as much as it is her boundary : it aims for escape but it also anchors in reality. It constitutes the tangible part of the process but it holds the power to lead to oneirism.

Materials and pattern buildling choices are meticulously made to serve the poetry of the moment. Carole’s tests always lead her to nature inspired structures : leaves’ oscillation in the wind or the brightness that drops of rain make… They are the best source of inspiration for her to be able to suggest places where the mind can free itself and fill with positive energy.
