Carrie Pitcher is an emerging contemporary artist based in Melbourne, notable for her portraits, that are at once both representational and abstract.

Working with acrylic on canvas, she marries abstract expressionism: swathes of bold colour, and opportunistic mark making, with the narrative of the portrait.

Close-cropped composition and sheer scale create a feeling of intimacy, while layer upon layer of abstract colour impart dynamic energy as if projected across the motif—chosen for a particular quality that engages the artist’s aesthetic sensibility.

Exploring themes of feminine dynamism and identity, the figurative and the abstract are brought together in a body of work that expresses an undefined personal significance, an extension of the artist herself.

Carrie’s artworks will be distributed through various print media to a circulation of more than 6,000 doctors and health professionals. The artworks will be auctioned off at the AGES XXVIII ASM 2018.
