Carol Duchamp: Dance Me to the End of Time

Carol Duchamp: Dance Me to the End of Time

My approach as an intuitive painter highlights the freedom and magic of unplanned process. Colors mingle and transform in a wordless unfolding of momentary experience. A synergistic dance between body, mind, spirit, water, pigment, and paper takes place. Each painting is a unique improvisation honoring the mystery of being that lies at the heart of creativity and consciousness. Though indeterminacy and chance play a role; craft and faith in the co-arising outcome are ever present. I fell in love with color as a child free to roam and witness mother nature’s exquisite palette. At summer camp, in a state of childlike wonder and enhanced perception, I once beheld the iridescent blue of a racer snake against the green of grass. Color sidled up against color. The play of color in nature is dynamic, similar to the blending of pigment directly on pre-soaked paper.
