Erotic silk thread paintings
This feminist erotica series is an outgrowth of her selfie series.
The selfie series is a wood collage series addressing social injustices and the exploitation of women. At that moment it became apparent that society was still uncomfortable talking about female sexuality in a positive manner.
A little over 2 years ago Carol began using imported high-end luxury silks as her painting medium. In these works, the female is in the position of power not in a position of objectification.
“A simple line can carry a wealth of emotional information that can be sensually beautiful without vulgarity. ” – Carol Scavotto
The titles of each of the works have become part of the story. The works share a great deal of humor and tenderness. The series has grown into intimate landscapes, a more developed stage of painterly storytelling.
“I find the fluid lines of the body beautiful. The circular form became an important factor: circle of life, inner circle, circle of trust.” – Carol Scavotto
Carol invites us into intimate settings that evoke a sensuous tenderness.
