Print Artist: Carol Aust
Carol Aust is an accomplished fine artist who produces a strong sense of drama in her art prints. She studied at California State University, Chico, CA and University of California at Berkeley Extension, Berkeley, CA. Today she lives in Oakland, California and has been creating paintings and limited edition prints for a number of years. Her art works are deeply personal expressions of the human needs for connection, belonging, and spiritual intimacy—and also the fear of these.
The subjects in Carol Aust paintings and art prints are complex and thought provoking. They can be optimistic, sometimes melancholy and disturbing. Her limited edition prints can be interpreted in multiple ways. They express a wide range of human desire and yearning and she often places her figures in precarious environments where anything could happen. Throughout in her art prints there is a recurring theme and direction of hope. Carol Aust’s art work features strong and vibrant colours along with figures that are both engaging and vulnerable. Her art work has been influenced by artists such as Emil Nolde, Marc Chagall, Kathe Kollwitz, and the German expressionists. Her paintings are produced in acrylic on canvas and wood panels. Her paintings and art prints are represented in private collections throughout the United States and the UK.
Talking about her art work Carols says: "Painting for me is an exposing of secrets. I paint feelings and experiences that I'm certain are unique to my journey, only to discover in the sharing that others are on the same path." The combination of whimsical scenes and serious emotional depth in Carol's art prints begs the viewer to stop and appreciate the subtle yet deep power in all her works. Aust's limited edition prints are emotionally charged parables of ordinary people moving through the landscapes of their lives, often at critical turning points that reflect how the choices we make every day take on a huge magnitude when multiplied over a life time.
