Conchita Carambano Description

 

 

 

Conchita Carambano Statement

Whenever I face a blank piece of large, good quality paper I know right away that I need to touch it and feel the quality – open the palettes, squeeze the paint tube and watch the vibrant, muted oils, acrylic or just pastel chalk in my hand, and know that this beautiful piece of white paper will soon come alive in the form of a drawing or painting.

I’ve been painting since I left school, where immediately after, I attended art school and thought what a wonderful place this is. I knew right away that this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life – paint and create.

I experience both beautiful and sad things through everyday life and these experiences generate a strong need to paint. Using colour through this wonderful medium, I express what I see and feel, and in turn I learn and discover new ways in which to express what I feel and the ideas that enter my mind.

When I start a painting, I focus on an idea or experience I once encountered, and let my feelings take control. At times the reaction I get is that the painting starts to take on a completely new direction to the initial one I had in mind. It takes on its own character as it were, however I am its creator and to this extent I have complete control over the end result. Because I detect this ‘character’, I’m able to detect the new direction that the painting is taking and stay in complete control of its final outcome. I feel this is important to an artist. I can honestly say that when I paint a painting based on a sad feeling, I can always look at it and find it very beautiful and rewarding.

I’m content in the realisation that everyone that sees one of my works, do so through different interpretations, thus giving it a new ‘feeling’ to the original that I intended. I love the sense of knowing that my work takes on different interpretations and appearances when hung in unknown homes and offices. It becomes more a child born to me.

The sources that inspire me are usually found all around us – nature being the main one. During my development, I have been able to focus on nature and the incredible sensation I get from being able to transfer the feelings I encounter and the inspiration that which drives me to transfer these feelings onto virgin paper. Because at times these inspirations come to me when I’m unable to paint, I have developed a sense whereby I ‘store’ these ideas and at times I find that when I do this I have the ability to expand on the initial idea and I feel that this sometimes take on the form of the ‘new direction’ within my painting that I sometimes encounter.

Being an artist is my life, and in no way could I imagine being, or doing, anything else.

 

Conchita Carambano Resumé

Conchita Carambano’s style is highly recognisable and yet profoundly enigmatic. There is an elegance and a maturity in Conchita’s abstract paintings infused by an instinctive gift with colour, line and form. The Australian landscape, our earth, have been a constant source of inspiration. It has fuelled her exploration andcreativity.

Her vehicle for expression has been boundary-less, and the potency of her work has fuelled an extraordinary career that continues to gather momentum. Awards, acquisitions, civic and corporate commissions, solo exhibitions and the attention of private collectors in Australia, Asia and the Middle East punctuate Conchita’s burgeoning 30 year career.
