Artist Statement

Carl has retired from the fashion industry in New York and is now living his lifelong dream: painting and sketching. His college education was at the Fashion Institute of Technology where among other art courses he studied figure drawing and painting as well as fashion design and art history.  He studied costume history at the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. He is a member of the Arts Council of Princeton, the Monroe Township Cultural Commission and the Trenton Artists Workshop.

His personal favorite artists are Edward Hopper and Andrew Wyeth.  He has been told that Hopper’s and Wyeth’s influence is apparent in several of Carl’s paintings.

His works contain a sense of mystery and form small vignettes.  Perhaps even a sense of melancholia.  At the same time his training in figure drawing is obvious in his depictions of female anatomy.

He was interviewed in the Time Off Section of the Princeton Packet as well as on local access TV in Princeton.

Carl has in recent years had one man shows in several local dining establishments in  the general area. He has had a one man show at the Princeton Windrows Village and been in group shows with the Trenton Artists Workshop exhibits at Ellarslie Mansion and Gallery 125 both in Trenton as well as a group show at the Grounds For Sculpture in Hamilton N.J.   In 2009 he had two paintings exhibited at the Twenty-seventh Ellarslie Open in Trenton NJ and participated in a group exhibit at the Straube Center in Pennington NJ. In 2010 paintings were exhibited at the Sawmill Gallery in Stockton NJ and the South Brunswick Municipal Bldg in South Brunswick, NJ.
