Carol Corell initially trained as a silversmith in the U.K. and was successful in producing a unique range of contemporary silverware under the name of Carol Quitter. Following a meeting at the Royal College of Art, London in the early 1990's, she began to develop her drawing and painting under Peter Rhoades of the Ruskin School, Oxford University and Denzil Forrester, Royal College of Art, London. Blocks, stripes and simple geometric shapes recur throughout her abstract paintings, collages and prints. Compositions are determined intuitively and then refined, employing lucid color and line. Carol's paintings play on themes and variations influenced by her involvement with music. Moments of vibrant color are countered by industrial tones and her tendency to rework passages so as to disrupt stability and avoid fine finishes. Her artworks are in museums, including the Victoria & Albert Museum; London, Cartier and private collections throughout Europe and the U.S. Carol works and lives in London and Santa Fe, NM.
