Carol Anthony is a former New York artist now living in New Mexico. Ms. Anthony works in oils and craypas, a pigment stick similar to pastel and crayon. Her work is usually small and sensitive, often landscapes. Eggs figure in many of her works, neatly made twin beds in others. Often there is a subtle reference to twins. Carol had an identical twin, Elaine, who was also an artist. She died of cancer after a long illness.
"Anthony is an accomplished painter with a distinctive way of handling her material. Her surfaces are her signature, thin, flat, but luscious", says critic Helen Kohen.
Carol Anthony says of her new life in New Mexico, "Living in the desert puts me in tune and makes me humble. I have been doing landscapes for quite a while, but there are also inner landscapes."
