Carrie Lee Allbritton, Houston, Texs Member Since September 2009 Artist Statement After spending years in the corporate world, Carrie Lee Allbritton returned to her first love with a passion and dedicated herself to making art through painting. Allbritton has spent years studying art and the use of color through studies with international and national artists and her extensive library. Basically self taught, she has surrounded herself with the influences of the masters of abstraction/non-objective fine art. Her work reflects her passion for life and love of all things beautiful. Each of paintings is created with the intent of capturing the mysteries of our lives, universe and our planet. She was born and raised in Houston, Texas and now lives just north of Houston.
With a growing list of dedicated collectors, Carrie Lee follows her own intuition to create canvases of remarkable sophistication and mystery. Her viewer is pulled toward the painting as they find veiled images within the layers of paint and expertly applied textures.
From the beginning, the use of pure intense color will direct and motivate the artist. At some point, her experience, technique and intuition will take over to bring the canvas to fruition. She prefers the fast, expressionistic strokes, occasionally working collage and found objects into the painting. Often she impresses patterns into wet paint, or draws, scrapes, or scratches into the surface of the painting.
The artist succeeds in the expression of mystery, exuberance, elusiveness and sophistication into which each viewer brings his own realities
."I don't want my viewer to take just a quick look and move on the next painting. I want them to become involved with my work, spending time delving in the depths of the surface for their own discoveries and satisfactions."
Carrie Lee Allbritton's paintings hang in corporate and private collections internationally.
