Carol Weissenborn


Carol embarked on her painting journey in her 60s, following a successful career as a lawyer spanning three and a half decades. In her work, she is preoccupied with time’s paradoxes — how what one has lost can exist so solidly in the present, while the present itself feels like it’s dissolving around us, a quantum thing designed to elude us. She chases these contradictions in her paintings. Working in acrylic and collage on, primarily, wood panels, she alternately builds and defaces layers to develop a history. Material recovered from earlier layers lurks beneath the surface, like something half-remembered. Along the way, some elements in the work will beckon, suggesting a compositional way forward. Moving back and forth between intention and chance, the linear and the circular, Carol develops the work to a place where hope and decay converge.
