“Life is what happens to you when you’re busy making other plans..”, is a favorite John Lennon quote of mine. Often, it’s those unexpected moments that bring the most joy. Austin artist Caroline Wright’s work is full of incidental beauty.
Abstract painters like Wright know that these happy accidents contribute to the rhythm and spontaneity so many of us love about abstract work.
Her work has wonderful little punctuations of color that keep the eye moving across the surface. But it’s the unintentional drips and marks that really make each piece soar and create tiny little compositions waiting to be discovered.
Even in her quieter compositions, such as the watercolor & mixed media below, the accidents are more subtle. The way the colors are delicately placed and soak into each other create soft, exquisite transitions.
