Artist Statement and Art Description:
Color continues to be the focus in the landscapes and still lifes of Carol Albrecht. Full sunlight, with warm and cool shadows, has been effective in depicting nature’s broad vistas of mountains and canyons, and equally useful depicting more intimate still lifes of flowers, leaves, etc.
More recently, the artist has experimented with observing the more subtle colors found in the fading blossoms and withering plants of nature. Her recent work contrasts still lifes of nature in full bloom, and then in decline, and she finds this later stage with subdued colors also interesting.
