Suspension

It Takes Trust and Balance

Put Your Finger on the Wall

"I paint what I see. Do you see what I see?"
 - Carole Alter

Carole Alter is New York City born and educated. She holds a Masters Degree in Fine Arts and was a student of Ad Reinhardt and Robert Motherwell. She has had both national and international shows and is represented in many private collections.

Carole Alter's handling of space is unique. A great expanse can be found on the smallest surface. By making no historic or geographic indications, her frame of reference becomes anywhere, anytime. Ms. Alter paints glimpses of familiar objects engaged in everyday activities. Things seen and remembered. Her figures seem to move, to gesture. Her subjects are numerous. The paintings are humorous, poignant, mysterious. Each painting is an individual statement. The medium is oil-pastel on paper.

It is the very distortion of shape and size, the personal use of color, at times muted, never gaudy, the just-right composition that make her paintings accessible and real. We have seen these scenes before. Where? When?

One sees in Carole Alter's work what one has seen and felt, but has not often seen represented in paintings. She has given us access to her mind.
