In Santa Monica….

One of my favorite restaurants, Upper West holds an opening reception for “Endless Layers of Life” featuring artist Carol Surface.

Surface is a versatile artist, working in acrylic, she uses many mediums such as printmaking, photography and original verse. She is fascinated by her surroundings, the artist finds much of her inspiration from watching how people relate to one another. Like most artists, she finds that what is happening in her everyday life affects her work as an artist.

Surface recently returned to painting after a sabbatical, thinking much would change in my art. It didn’t. She elaborates, “That reality is at the core of my work, and confirms a central theme of mine: No matter how many layers we don and shed in life, the constraints of being human prevail. As we yearn for escape, we take comfort in our foundation, in who we are and who we always will be.”
