Carol Setterlund
Among the themes consistent in my work today is the search for ties to the past. I look for the psychological and emotional conflicts, the complexities and existential traumas with which we struggle. I hope to evoke primitive ritual and classicism, and to express both an empathic and archetypal representation of humanness.

Beauty for me is expressed by texture and layering, by the depth and response to both material and experience. I walk a tightrope between opposites, between primitive and contemporary, crude and sophisticated, between what is fuzzy and what is clear, and what is conscious and what is not.
