Carole Rabe

  • Pots on a Windowsill
  • Paper Whites
  • Floral Chair

Carole Rabe is an oil painter whose interiors and still lifes are created from direct observation. Her immediate surroundings provide the imagery for her paintings. She is interested in the way light reveals and conceals forms, and how it influences the color of objects. Her compositions explore relationships—between shapes, values, colors, objects, and the rectangle of the canvas. Human presence is implied in her paintings.

Upcoming exhibition at the Bull Run Restaurant in Shirley, MA, Month of June 2016
