DONNA CARON Biography

Donna Caron's background lies heavily in the use of clay as an expressive medium, including a BFA from Maine College of Art. Although she maintains a deep appreciation for the integrity of this material, when considering her present body of work, she began searching out a medium that could more accurately facilitate her objectives. Lightweight modified concrete provided many possibilities without some of the inherent constraints of clay. Through dedicated inquiry Caron developed a refined methodology essential to the execution of her present works.

Caron's vision stems from a faith based ideology. Daily practice and involvement in her spiritual community are important aspects of her belief system. She holds that, at our most elemental level, we become active participants in all of creation. In this experience of sacred connection lies the potential for ultimate self-realization.

Executed on a human scale, her figures describe a sense of fusion between humankind and nature. Consistently, the viewer is drawn from an initial perception of the forms into the ever increasing surface detail, where new entities are revealed. These vestiges reflect our inherent ties to creation and bring forth our story.

DONNA CARON Statement

My work is presently centered on the human form as a visual symbol. Beyond its physical presence, the figure exists as a reflection of our perception of the ancient, the eternal. For me, these vestiges invoke a deep appreciation of our origins and a sacred connection to creation that exceeds physical boundaries. From an initial perception of the figure's rudimentary forms, the viewer is drawn into ever increasing surface detail. This process reveals an interaction between the figure and elements that mirror the natural world, describing a sense of fusion between humankind and nature. These seemingly mute figures speak to our spirituality. They signal a need for quiet introspection, inviting us to journey back to that place where we define ourselves. They remind us of our legacy as we relive the story of creation, unfolding as it has through the ages.
