Carin Kulb Dangot was born and raised in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and has been living and working in New York City since 2010. Dangot is a visual artist, who works in large-scale mixed media paintings, sculpture, drawings and prints. She explores the energy, color and texture she experiences in the world around her. Her work has been featured in solo and group exhibitions internationally, including, MUBE, the Brazilian Museum of Sculpture; the Phyllis Harriman Mason Gallery, New York City; Soho 20, New York City; and the Augusta Savage Gallery, Amherst, MA.
Dangot studied and received her masters degree in engineering in the early years of her career in Brazil. She then turned to fine arts at the Panamericana School of Arts and Design, and continued her education in New York with Peter Hristoff at The School of Visual Arts, and Grace Knowlton, Bruce Dorfman, Mariano Del Rosario, and Ronnie Landfield at the Art Student's League. She is the proud recipient of The Lloyd Sherwood Grant for Outstanding Work in Non-Objective Art and the Leonard Rosenfeld Merit Scholarship from the Art Student's League. Among the many whom Dangot credits as influences throughout her creative process are: abstract expressionists, Willem de Kooning and Louise Bourgeois, architect Oscar Niemeyer, painter Candido Portinari, and singer Elis Regina.
I am a Brazilian Artist living and working in New York City. I'm interested in the way that colors behave without any preconceived selection, just following my intuition. I like to explore unexpected combinations of colors coexisting in the painting. I don't think about creating shapes, they emerge from the colors, creating forms and layered images that both float and are structural. My process is present and responsive as I work through each piece in search of the human presence in abstraction. When the painting is finished, there is a relation between movement, line, plane, shape and color that is intense and connected. There is also a relationship between considered response, chance and reflection. Ultimately, I am interested in capturing the flow and fluid motion of abstraction.
