Trained as an oil painter at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Carol Odell has worked in commercial design, textiles and photography. Her improvisational, non-objective, color expressive works are created in oil, encaustic (beeswax medium) or monotype. Beginning with a non-representational structure, her paintings are built with an eye to creating an imagined space with non-specific references to the natural world. Viewers are encouraged to wander through paintings as if visiting a “place” for the first time. The possibilities of color as a stimulant to the human appreciation of art provide limitless inspiration for the artist’s explorations.
