Conchita Carambano

Born in Germany to Spanish parents, Conchita hails from Sydney after having migrated in 1969 where over the last twenty years she has proceeded to make her indelible mark upon the Australian and International art market. Exhibiting extensively with numerous solo exhibitions and group shows to her name this painter has established herself as an abstract artist revered for her strongly individualised interpretations, and is regularly featured in art publications, reviews and art awards. A favourite amongst the creative design industries, Conchita's inspired interpretations elicit a boldly visceral response as this artist depicts her visions and thoughts, pushing inventiveness to the limit upon canvas and paper. Utilising mixed media, oil, acrylic and wax, Conchita studies her environment and draws inspiration from nature to produce engaging artworks characterised by organic forms and a sensuous use of space, colour and symmetry. The source of Conchita Carambano’s new work of large format paintings comes from an unrelenting passion and love of interaction with canvas. The technique is more refined after 25 years as a mid career artist working with both canvas and paper mediums. The progress of the work is not determined by time as her painting schedule may take up 16 hours on any day. The colours, texture and content of her paintings have proven over time to be most intuitive, which explains her success with commissioned works including the national Canberra Library. Conchita’s work has consolidated with her solid reputation as an established, collectible artist. The series depicts an emergence of less abstracted works with small elements of the figurative, which is unlike any of her previous painting. Her work creates a strongly individual interpretation of her natural surroundings and experiences. Viewing her work is both absorbing and complex. The work is composed of layers, mixed medium detail, and subtleties of colour, light and form.
