Meet Carole Jury

Today we’d like to introduce you to Carole Jury.

Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
I arrived in USA four years ago with my family. When we decided to move, I was in charge of the Communications department in a French Chemical Company. I saw this move as a life opportunity to transform my passion for art and interior design into a new career. I had never dared to dream about it before. It was an amazing project! New life and New Challenges!

Please tell us about your art.
I like playing with textured strokes, nuances of color and brightness. Photography is another of my passion. The majority of my paintings are inspired by my photos, which give me a guide for colors, textures, and reliefs of my abstract painting. Oil paint naturally lends itself plasticity and superimposition. It’s for this principal reason that I love working with this medium. I combine the two medium of expression -photography and paint in my process, starting from photography and then transposing it to painting to create my series such as Dark sea or La Vie en Rose.

I use all kind of tools like knives, spoons, brushes and whatever I have in my studio. I like integrating new materials like fabrics, metal…It’s a toy building set! Even if I’m interested in many art movements, my favorite artist remains Pierre Soulages. Strength and refinement emerge from his paintings. I love it…Furthermore, I’m extremely passionate about interior design and I need to imagine my own paintings in an interior design. I consider that interior design is an art and therefore my paintings are part of the process.

We often hear from artists that being an artist can be lonely. Any advice for those looking to connect with other artists?
Connecting with other artists is sometimes difficult but art fairs, social media (Special group) can be the right places.
