The four elements of life inspired local artist Carol Carter in her vibrant watercolor art now showing at St. Louis Lambert International Airport titled, Elements. The dynamic exhibition features four large, original watercolor paintings mounted side-by-side depicting her artistic interpretation of air, fire, earth and water. The eye-catching work is located in Terminal 2 between gates E10 and E14.
“Each aspect of my work is mysterious, seductive, intense, and inviting,” said Carter, who describes her paintings as containing duality: clarity and ambiguity; sanctuary and threat; pleasure and pain. The use of vibrant, saturated-color contributes to the tension between these extremes.
An internationally recognized watercolorist, Carol Carter makes her home in St. Louis, but regularly travels the world to teach and participate in workshops, sharing her skills and talents with other artists.
