Cultivating an extraordinary relationship with your body is some of the hardest and greatest work we can do for ourselves. Experimenting with her own body as medium and investigating the female shapes, as well as sculptural possibilities of high end materials.
She started her career as an artist in London with creating innovative, reflecting female bodies from aluminum foil and acrylic paint which resulted in Carola’s first collection – a series of nudes.
Carola explored the tactile experience of bodypainting. The unique imprints created in the Colored Nudes collection represents the feminine body in all her being, translated in different sizes & colors.
Focussing on shapes and textural expression, the Aluminum nudes collection has been carefully crafted with aluminium sheets. Each work is presented in curated colours and frames. The bodily features seem to transform while the light is playing with the embossed curves.
