Abstract

Through exploration of roots and establishing a deep appreciation for family, heritage, and upbringing, Carolyn Mimbs is on a journey into realms of personal discovery and a reconnection to the earth. Distant memories are unearthed through a vintage aesthetic and sensual, vulnerable figures interacting and struggling within their surroundings. Artist and art have traveled along the same path and rhythm with increasing strides as desires are directed towards personal growth and transformation. Learning to retreat into the process of life and art is expressed through creation and disintegration, seeing the path that our corporeal bodies make as they one day return to the earth, completing the cycle of birth, formation, enlightenment, and death.
