Carolyn Fels brings to her landscapes a sense of diffused atmospheric colour with a melancholy and confronting aspect. The frames within frames in her paintings simultaneously distance you from the subject while paradoxically allowing closer focus on the specific images portrayed.
Carolyn Fels was born in Melbourne. She studied at the National Gallery School 1959-60 and the George Bell School 1961-62. She obtained a graduate diploma in Fine Art (painting) in 1988. She has exhibited in all eastern states capital cities since 1988. Her paintings are represented in the Australian National Gallery, National Gallery of Victoria and Monash University Museum of Art.
