Fresh Girls
The latest works by Carolyn Weltman


© Carolyn Weltman

Opening reception on Thursday, November 10, 2005, 6 - 9:00 PM.

Getting a good likeness from her models is not one of Carolyn’s priorities. Getting a gesture that best represents the model’s inner feeling, is. In fact, it is quite rare to see faces in these works, for Carolyn is much more concerned with the vibration of the figure.

Carolyn Weltman works out the composition with charcoal, paper and gesso. Of late, Weltman is less concerned with her computer drawings, and the unique prints that she renders, than putting it all on with paint. Working with layers of oil and gesso on 300# rag paper, she works the surface into a frenzy of texture, color and defined areas of flesh in an expressionist style. Her flowing lines are superb and captivating, hinting at the model’s place within the muted backgrounds.

Carolyn Weltman has consistently sold her work at auction for the New York Academy of Art through both Christies and Sothebys over the last 7 years.

ABSTRACT ART
“The abstract, especially in those rough sketches, is very important to me, perhaps because of my advertising background, where layout is so important. Sometimes those first few lines cut the paper into such satisfying shapes that I don’t want to go on, but I always do, adding nostrils and nipples and bootstraps until I have filled the paper up as usual.” — Tom of Finland
