Carole Caroompas: 2012-13 Faculty Development Grant Report


Excerpt:

I requested a new computer and printer, books, photos, and scripts to collect and develop imagery for my new painting project titled Hallucinatory Logic in the Sahara Desert. These paintings will be exhibited at Western Project Gallery upon completion.

This new project started in Jan. 2012 when I was on sabbatical for Spring semester. My paintings require a tremendous amount of research, reading, writing, gathering of images and text from books, photos, the web and Youtube videos. My process in the studio started with Paul Bowles novel The Sheltering Sky and Bertolluci's film under the same title and T.E. Lawrence's memoir 7 Pillars of Wisdom, A Triumph and David Lean's film Lawrence of Arabia. This was the base of the project titled Hallucinatory Logic in the Sahara Desert where I would expand upon my interest in high culture in collision with popular culture.
