About Carol Bajen-Gahm:
Given her international background, it is not surprising that the works of Carol Bajen-Gahm combine a world of influences. Her contemporary abstractions in oil on panel evolved from a figurative style deeply rooted in German Expressionism, but also reflect her deep interest in the works of Robert Motherwell, Paul Klee, and Robert Rauschenberg. Following a period of intense exposure to Asian art and culture, Bajen-Gahm experienced an artistic metamorphosis, shedding her earlier methods for a streamlined abstraction. Working in emotionally evocative colors and textures and without sketches or plans, Bajen-Gahm incorporates elements of collage and oil stick drawing to her panels in order to translate her flowing stream of expression. Concentrating on the expression of the human psyche, Bajen-Gahm's works appeal to a wide audience, and through their hypnotic, soulful beauty, speak directly to the spirit.
Trained in the fields of fine art and jazz composition, Carol Bajen-Gahm continually seeks new ways to promote a sense of spiritual healing through her art. The artist lives and works in Massachusetts and Newfoundland.
