Carol Es is an exciting and original new voice. She expresses herself wholly in her art after surviving a tumultuous childhood of sexual abuse and neglect. She uses past experience, family dysfunction and her own Jewish heritage as the fuel for her subject matter, transforming a broken past into a culmination of paper collage, garment patterns, sewing pins, thread, text, and prose - personal experiences laid bare and forged directly into her work.
Carol's works are featured in numerous private collections including the Getty Museum, Brooklyn Museum, UCLA Special Collections, the Jaffe Collection, and Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris. Carol has exhibited at the Riverside Art Museum, Torrance Art Museum, Santa Monica Museum of Art, The Craft & Folk Art Museum, and Zimmer Children's Museum. She is a two-time recipient of the ARC grant from the Durfee Foundation and completed a special print residency at Self Help Graphics in East Los Angeles. She is represented by George Billis Gallery.
