HISTORY & BACKGROUND Her subtly prepared paintings are offerings that contain gestures and silhouettes of implicit images and fleeting objects, figures engraved on multiple overlapping layers, almost bas-reliefs, connecting to a prehistoric iconography that sometimes brings to mind petroglyphs of old cultures, already vanished. These graphic elements in her work are remembrances of an ancient memory, which speak to us of remote places and epochs.
She mainly uses the traditional encaustic technique, which blends beeswax with different waxes and pigments. Carme is deeply attracted by the richness of ochre and blue colors that evoke the Mediterranean lands and skies. She adds figurative elements that tell both about everyday life and about her vital and sentimental concerns, without abandoning abstraction. In spite of expressive tensions, she tries to make her paintings convey a pacifying reading in a world that bears too much stress and hardship.
