Paige Carr

Fine Art Student - Artist

I'm a final year student and I have the hope by connecting with others, and developing my knowledge and skills more in depth will give me a good starting point to the next step in my career after graduation next year.

I'm a painter creating photo-realistic/figurative and abstract work. I sometimes enjoy coming away from paint and trying new techniques like printmaking and collage as another element of creating a painting without painting. Experimentation, mark-making, colour and process is an important aspect in my work. I seem to enjoy responding to paintings by questioning the medium used, how it sits onto a type of surface, allowing the paint to speak for itself through the act and process of painting creating a formality that can disrupt or engage with the viewer.
