Bio

Carolyn Shattuck who was born in Montreal, Canada, moved to the United States in 1971. After a short stay , she and her husband lived in Okinawa, Japan for three years where she became influenced by the history and beauty of the Japanese prints . She returned to the United States and studied painting at Bard College. After graduating , she divided her time between painting and developing a unique printing method, using the monotype as a base. For the past few years she has been studying the imagery of New England tombstones. The Puritan folk art of urns, angels, death’s heads and hourglasses are reinvented through narrative still lifes and landscapes. She was influenced by a trip to China where she discovered the terracotta warriors. That experience translated into several bodies of work ,combining dry point technique and collage. In the past decade, Book Arts has been
the focus of a body of work combining drawing and print assemblage techniques in three
dimensional form.
Shattuck believes her work is the freedom to extrapolate ideas and motifs from many sources in order that they can cross-pollinate and exist as a whole. She says “ I hope to celebrate life in all its complexities while acknowledging the shadow on my left shoulder”.
Carolyn exhibits her work nationally in numerous juried exhibitions including Delta National Small Prints, Parkside National Small Prints and Printwork ‘98, 2K at Barrett Art Gallery in Poughkeepsie. She has received numerous awards including the University of Texas, Purchase award, National Works on Paper and her books can be seen in numerous university Special Book Collections. She teaches Book Art workshops in New England and Florida.
