Carole LaRoche’s paintings are populated with animals and spirits who are simultaneously completely different and touchingly familiar. We know how they feel. And they seem to understand us, too.
“People can look at them and find answers,” she says.
Carole sees the characters in her art as spiritual guides – messengers from a parallel universe she has tapped into. Her paintings combine elements of Egyptian, Native American, and other mythologies. Carole’s portraits of animals and shamans are simply composed and have a primitive, mystical quality.
