Nail Polish on Panel
Signed on Verso
Curated by Beth Greenacre
Caroline Zurmely is an American artist. Her art is often driven by material, texture and process. Recent series include nail polish enamel relief paintings and pieces made by manipulating the fibers of vintage towels. Her work with nail polish explores tabloid photography and scenes of public mourning in tight close-ups, crafting opposing senses of intimacy and remoteness between the viewer and subject. Utilizing unconventional materials and restricting the scope of her pieces, Zurmely aims to alter the viewer’s experience with respect to distance
