Carol Mathews Original Abstract Oil Painting on Canvas of Figure

Item Details

Carol Mathews
Oil on Canvas

An original oil painting on canvas by American artist Carol J. Mathews (1956-2015). This painting features a woman standing at the center of the composition, holding an ambiguous object covered with a swirling pattern. This work is unsigned and is marked to the verso with a stamp from the artist’s estate. The stretched canvas is unframed, awaiting your choice of presentation.

Mathews, known for her colorful and expressive paintings and drawings, describes her work as follows: ‘having painted for over 25 years, it is difficult to describe my art but whimsical, abstract, and fantasy come to mind.’ After years of suffering from mental illness, Carol’s art became a crucial conduit for her internal turmoil. A portion of the proceeds from this sale will go to NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness. For more information about the artist visit the link in Additional Information.
