Hope is a Fragile Flower, Remembering 9/11
"When life is difficult, hold onto truth and lean into beauty," is a favorite quote of Kentucky artist, Carol J. Phipps.  In addition to clay sculptures, Phipps has been prolific creating art work with colors torn and cut from magazine paper as represented here in "Hope is a Fragile Flower, Remembering 9/11."  (Note the original poem below which was written for this work.)  Often Phipps' technique for doing collage has been referred to as "painting with paper;" randomly chosen torn pieces of color are like "scrapes of wonder," Phipps says.  Together, such tears tell a human story.  To view Phipps' on-line gallery click on artwork at left. Reproductions and originals available at reasonable prices. (Brochure available).  Mailing address: Carol J. Phipps, P.O. Box 8215, Louisville, Kentucky 40257.

My work is like my purse; full of life support devices that I can't quite put my finger on. Each piece of art I do is a small drama; a narrative. The pictures are full of people and animals. Sometimes the characters are people I know and sometimes I make them up. My medium is linoleum, simple and direct. I print with black ink or crisp white Masa paper. The prints range in size from 6" x 9" to 24" x 36". The prices range from $20. to $300. The editions are limited to 50 because I print by hand on my own press.
