‘Art is a concept.
There are many different concepts yet abstract art is difficult one as abstract is the concept in its nature – the nature of abstract is a concept. Creative process requires certain discipline from artist in terms of balancing the ‘composition’.
The relation to abstract art is measured by intuitive motion. It is individual experience and the response has emotional character. It engages feelings, creates mood and sets an atmosphere.
… And this is the essence of abstract art.’ – Carolina Khouri
Carolina Khouri’s paintings are created mostly in series. Her art is dominated by free and abstract approach. Through the composition and the vivid colours artist finds the balance and harmony, which emanate and energise.
Khouri is intrigued by many aspects of life and culture, which she transforms into the style that she finds accurate for the theme. Her art is as universal and it provokes to communicate with the vision and the feelings depicted.
Over the years she has been developing techniques and style of layering paint and stokes to emphasise the physical aspect of painting where colour is the intervening substance through which impressions are conveyed to the senses.
Carolina Khouri is inspired by great masters and by the radical artists art movements, which have had a significant impact on art and its directions over the centuries. In her practice essential factor is artist’s freedom of expression within or out of the canon.
