Caren Canier

In her paintings in mixed media, Caren Canier borrows imagery from the classical world along with nineteenth century and contemporary photographs to create images about human experience of time, history and memory. Her technique involves a combination of collage and painting. Much of her work is informed by time spent in Italy, where layers of history are visibly embedded in the fabric of contemporary life. Many of her recent paintings juxtapose forms from antiquity and the modern world, borrowing from experiences of living in Rome and Umbria and recently, traveling in Egypt.
