About The Artwork

As the coral reefs and sea grasses are under threat of deterioration, so is the habitat for the sea horses. I saw these miniature sea horses in the waters surrounding the Keys.My hope is to focus attention on this fragile species. Sea Horse is a unique one of a kind work on paper.

KEY WEST: INSIDE/OUTSIDE Carolyn Shattuck In her wildly colored, abstract-plus-figurative art, Shattuck’s aim is to show connections and contrasts between the energy in the water and the energy on the street, reflecting the blend of lifestyles she experiences every year during her four months near Key West.  The collages depict two opposing aspects of the area: the loud, boisterous life of the ethnic neighborhoods with music, dancing, motorcycles versus the serenity of life out in a kayak viewing the denizens of the deep. The natural world has its own super-abundance: shore birds – plovers and sandpipers, horseshoe crabs, and other wildlife.  Shattuck documents this barrage of disparate information.    The artist says that her work combines such experiences as the idyllic kayaking trips, where she sees “complexity and chaos in random harmony,” and then on the streets, the “cacophony of the Bahamian village, with chickens and music and dogs and cats and people sitting out on their porches yelling across the street.”  Petronia, a 30-inch-square collage, depicts a sea turtle, sea birds, shells, and marsh grasses in addition to crazy-quilt-type patterns and rollicking rhythms that conjure up the frenetic ethnic life. Shattuck  enjoys using a variety of seductive materials in these new collages: pieces of artist-created print patterns, Japanese papers to effect transparencies, and prints of her own delicate drypoint sketches, to mention a few.  Some of the collage pieces involve printmaking with fiber dyes and transfer stencils.   The artist is known as a painter and printmaker.  Shattuck also has a national reputation as a book artist .Her work has been purchased by thirty University Collections. Recently The Smithsonian Museum purchased Jazz Modern.
