Complexities, an international online solo drawing art exhibition by Carmen Schaefer opens on March 10, and will continue for two months until May 10, 2024.

Carmen Schaefer draws in black and white and in color on paper. Her work is figurative, yet not totally realistic. It is a style not altogether ‘real’ and not quite ‘surreal’. It evolves more and more to expressionism as charcoal takes a more dominant position. Shadows are pervasive, people are isolated, and barren landscapes surround them. Memories of times past are evoked by inanimate objects, which have a bittersweet presence. The scene is punctuated with subtle undercurrents of emotions. Sunny imagery and vibrant color may paradoxically envelope a forlorn spirit waiting for life to happen or an object that has seen life already, as a poignant sense of ‘absence’ pervades the drawing belying the apparent simplicity of the subject.

Artist ( Description ): 

Carmen Schaefer holds an MA in Art History and an MFA in Photography and Drawing. She has studied with Allen Kaprow at Stony Brook University, Henry Holmes Smith at Indiana University and Arnold Gasson at Ohio University.

This schooling along with a life of early constant travel as the daughter of a career Navy man is reflected in her work. There was no “home town”. There were eight different schools before high school. It was a very peripatetic and isolated life

She has shown photographs at the Everson Museum in Syracuse, taken first place for photography at the Central New York Art Open and second place at the Plymouth Center for the Arts National Photography Exhibit and Competition and shown photographs internationally at PH21 Gallery in Budapest, Hungary.

She has exhibited drawings at over 40 venues and galleries. She has won awards for drawing at the 33rd Bradley Print & Drawing Exhibition and 29th International Drawing & Print Competitive Exhibition at Gormley Gallery Notre Dame of Maryland University, 53rd annual Drawing and Small Sculpture show in Corpus Christie, Texas, Connecticut Academy of Fine Art CAFA+ show and for the 2020 American Art Awards competing with artists from 62 countries.

She has been featured in Lake Affect magazine, Along magazine, and Artistonish Magazine.

She is a signature member of the Rochester Art Club, a member of Rochester Contemporary Art and an elected member of the Connecticut Academy of Fine Art.

Her work is in many private collections.
