Carolyn Plochmann Artist Statement:
"For a certain kind of artist, all the ages and times of his life are present while he is painting. The only certainties are: that which is not in his possession; freedom; risk.
This has been true for me, and whatever the subject of the painting, it most often begins with a mere hint, an open question, be it a line, a texture, a color, or sometimes a phrase written or spoken. Infinite possibilities may be found in a pale tangerine shape, hitting upon a hard edge of white that is heavier; somewhere a fine gold line that may be in the inner eye or on the canvas.
The inherent geometry, the architectural structure of the image, evolve in layers of superimposed second thoughts, and not in a preconceived composition where all is determined beforehand...
...Always the unexplainable about time and space fascinates me so much; visual and spiritual mystery."
