Fine Artist Carrie Vielle
Born in Victoria, B.C., Canadian artist Carrie Vielle has been painting since childhood. Her family members include fine artists, photographers/film makers, actors, writers, musicians and composers, and they enriched Carrie’s arts education. In addition to art, traveling has always been a part of Carrie’s life. She lived in France for two summers, studying the language, culture and art. While living in Italy, Carrie toured the country studying the works of the Renaissance and Baroque Masters. “Walking past Michelangelo’s David everyday was the most magical, surreal experience of my life.” Carrie’s work has been warmly accepted into national galleries and been included in international exhibits and collections.
Carrie views the role of art as one of communication and connection. “My work explores the universal expressive language of the human body. Each of us has felt joy, sensuality, loneliness, melancholy, etc. I want viewers to see these expressions in my work and engage in a dialogue with the figures. By identifying with an image, and perhaps creating a personal story around the figure, the viewer might better understand that the human condition is shared, that we are never really alone.”
