    About Carol Gove

    I enjoy giving new life to older materials, leaving only a fragment of their original state. When you see my paintings, they feel almost built, with lots of layering and ripping away.

    I draw from nature, landscape, and abstract expressionism, attempting to strike a balance between painterly gesture and the physicality of a pasted collage fragment. I mine a personal and aesthetic history for source material, reusing scraps of old handwritten letters, worn labels, sheet music, sewing patterns, and other memorabilia from my childhood and the lives of family members, creating something new from something old.

    I create dialogue and play between the graphical history and textures of the found materials and the fluidity and opacity of paint. Remnants of imagery appear and disappear in my work as the materials are washed and worn by layers of paint. It is my intent to give viewers a glimpse at a recognizable fragment or common history so that they may be reminded of their own memories and lives.
