Carolyn Latanision | Artist

Juror Review
Entangled safety valves, check valves, steam traps, tubes, popes, nuts and bolts provide a perfect setting for creating a very fascinating design. The interlocking shapes, shadow contours, positive and negative shapes, contrasting values and dramatic light patterns reveal a strong sensitivity for what constitutes a strong and sound design.
Jeannie McCormack
Gallery & Studio
Carolyn Latanision’s watercolor of a young woman and a young man speaking on separate outdoor pay phones was called “Dueling Phones.” But it just as easily could have been entitled “Adam and Eve,” given their scanty summer outfits and the archetypal quality with which the artist endowed their youthful bodies.

Sun in Seville
This painting is strong in its quiet presentation. The composition poses a challenge for itself, but is so well balanced in spite of the potential for a possible static symmetry. The palette invites us to enter the elegance of the scene as it subtly transitions across the page. Beautiful luminosity….the essence of transparent watercolor. What great drawing skills!
