Artist: Caroline Pyle Sample Work:
Caroline Pyle has worked as a public health professional since graduating from Boston and Yale Universities. After a near-fatal car accident devastated her life, she turned to art as a form of physical and cognitive therapy. Though she worked in the field of public health prior to the accident, she did not fully understand the intense connection between creativity and personal health until after the accident. “Painting was the only time I experienced a pain-free existence. I was in a blissful zone,” Pyle says. “When I painted, the vibrancy that was trapped inside of me, exploded on canvas. I realized I was still alive in my otherwise broken body…” A self-taught abstract artist, Pyle gives her emotions a clear voice, allowing pain and brokenness to be articulated through beauty. Pyle reflects, “After you’ve been shattered, your breaks make you more brilliant, much like shards of glass. The breaks experienced in life add texture, vibrancy and perspective”. Vivid color combinations are the hallmark of Pyle’s dramatic works as well as liberal use of mediums such as glass, gels and pastes. She has learned that life is not a neat package of black and white. Rather, life is filled with colorful moments that transform, alter and often forever change who we are – it’s color outside the lines. Pyle’s newly discovered passion for creativity, which was first a means of personal survival, has now become a voice of hope for broader audiences. She has exhibited nationally, and her original works of art can be found in select fine art galleries and retail outlets.
