Carol Sanchez' prints are rich and seductive organic forms. She works in the printmaking process of Mezzotint, which lends to her vision of "Organic Abstractions". He Mixed Media Constructions up-cycle her prints/proofs and copper plates to create "Contemporary Relics".
Sanchez statement, "I abstract organic forms and re-articulate them into my own visual language, into "Organic Abstractions". Nature is my source of inspiration, but as a printmaker process is very important. I try to create a balance between technique and concept. My work evolves intuitively, images develop from a first mark without any preconceived ideas or images. As a printmaker working primarily in the process of mezzotint, this can be a difficult way to begin. For me it keeps things fresh and challenging. the process of mezzotint has a very rich and seductive quality, which lends to my imagery. I strive to create images that have an essence of beauty. I accentuate the sensual and spiritual characteristic and draw out the beauty from the ordinary.
