Carrie Swim, presses into the breaking and growing pains of humanity. She continually tests the borders of paint and her own skill, thought, movement, and connection to the source of Life itself.

Her creative process serves as tools for healing and understanding the world within and around her. She carries a well-trained hand for representational work, yet dives into organic lyrical abstraction. Details of the subject observed are hidden yet known in line and color free from assumed definitions. She finds color to be a door into exploring the meaning behind a form, experience or idea untethered to associations specific forms can carry. Line carries a rhythm, a heart beat, of a form instead of a edge or singular thought.

Carrie follows the love of Hashem to the ends of the ends of the earth. She would stay locally but finds His love takes her farther. She desires that she can have the honor of being one page in the story of G_d’s healing in hearts on the earth. She frequents Europe, Israel and Africa with painting studies, residences, and workshops. When “home”, she creates in her sunlit studios at Mana Contemporary in Jersey City, New Jersey and Paint Can Studios in Queens, New York.
