About the Artist:
Carolyn Snow has taken art classes in artist’s studios, at the Milwaukee Art Museum and the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design as well as being self-taught. She has also taken professional courses from the Wisconsin Arts Board and from the Milwaukee Artist Resource Network.
Though not Native American herself, Carolyn lived for several years in the West and along the Oregon coastland, where she developed a personal and artistic connection with some of the First Nations in those regions. The imagery of her paintings often reflects this spiritual link she has with native peoples.
Carolyn has also been a longtime friend and co-facilitator of spiritual wellness classes with Dogbotz Boneyard co-owner Patrick Price. Because she has been an ongoing caretaker of the four-leggeds of Mother Earth, we are not only honored to present Carolyn’s work through the Dogbotz Boneyard Gallery of Art but also delighted to donate 20% of each of her pieces sold to our preselected charity that focuses on domestic animal, wildlife and/or environmental welfare.
Dogbotz Boneyard values the artwork of Carolyn Snow because of her palette of intense color that breathes the artist’s primitive themes to life. All of Snow’s work has a heart-pounding elemental aesthetic, whether the mode is entirely abstract or tends more towards recognizable imaginings, but always with powerful bursts of color. Her icons are male and female, the extended family, static and in motion, observing and doing, but all part of daily existence. Snow sees them as primitive blatant life forces, representative of humanity, maternity and ancestral lineage. And so, from our Dogbotz Boneyard Gallery of Art for your own personal collection, we present Carolyn Snow’s Rocket Man.
