I create fine art as a means to explore my interest in many subjects, implementing skills learned building theatrical scenery and from studio practice. My work is driven by a wide-ranging curiosity and a desire to make objects that explore interesting concepts. The intersection between lived experience and phenomena out of control of the individual runs through the body of work regardless of media or style.
My work explores the collision of humanity with phenomena that is at the edge of our understanding as a species. Some examples include the Evil Divided By Good series which asks the hypothetical question, “How many acts of goodness does it take to counteract one evil act?”, or the Conversation series exploring verbal relationships. At times my work has taken a scientific turn, such as in the pieces Sowing Good Will, about fractals and dispersion, and Brainstorm which explores dynamics of soliton waves.
“Carolyn Enz Hack’s powerful mixed media paintings also document a Vermont whose fortunes have ebbed and flowed through time.” Sheryl Trainor Art New England Sept/Oct 2016
