Carol Auld

Carol Auld’s creative explosion began by studying and working at Atelier Pochinko, with the late Richard Pochinko, in the 1980s. After that, she studied at the Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto, Ontario, where she graduated with a Double Major in Intermedia/New Media. She then completed a Masters of Media Arts at Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec. She has worked on a wide range of community-based creative projects, and taught art and media classes and workshops at artist-run centres as well as the college level. In her work, she explores the meaning of visual communication by combining her knowledge of many different techniques of art and design.

She combines and creates images from her intuitive sensibilities through incisive research and active dreaming. As a researcher, she delves deeply into subject matter for any given project or series. The works she has created are ones that create compelling and vibrant visual images to attract attention from an emotional viewpoint, rather than just a scientific or intellectual one. Her work combines elements of dream states, abstract expressionism, surrealism, feminism and graphic art and is infused with psychological, spiritual and sexual content. Her feeling for texture, colour, line and form create pieces that vibrate with energy.
