Introducing local artist - CAROLYN BRANN

Monarch | Arredon Contemporary has selected a series of abstract paintings by local artist CAROLYN BRANN for exhibition at the historic La Valencia Hotel in La Jolla, California.  Works will be on display through July 2018.


I am interested in the place where art, music, nature, and human behavior meet – and the surprises that accompany this meeting place. I create work derived from how I feel about whatever might be going on for me at these intersections.  I don’t set out to make grand political or social statements; rather, they are organic by-products based on how I am feeling as I am creating.  Often this is relationship-based or nature-based and many times my work is based on images that come to me during my daily Vedic meditations.

I want my work to provoke thoughtful silence that can spark a meaningful conversation about the emotions and feelings born of that silence.  My inspiration comes from many sources:  the natural world and its colors, observing people in action, conversation, and other artists – past and present. ~ Brann.
