Agnes Repplier once observed how “the impulse to travel is one of the hopeful symptoms of life.” Through art Carolyn Beehler explores the places she loves anew, alleviating post-travel blues by exploring positive new perspectives. Enlightened by the lives of people across the world, her artworks testify that travel is more than escapism, that we should absorb new places and artifacts until they are fully integrated into our being. She appreciates the way art and travel promotes improved, longstanding relationships with people and cultures. Collage became the most fascinating medium to express these convictions, given the array of textures, words and numbers that create layers of story and symbolism. Her impressionistic style hints at the works of Vincent van Gogh and Salvador Dali, two artists who pioneered expressions of movement as well as a dreamlike fusion of unrelated images.
