Lylia Forero Carr has worked in painting, drawing, sculpture and printmaking. Her recent works have been in mixed media and encaustic. She starts either with monotypes or collages and finish them by painting or drawing with oil paint, oil pastels or oil sticks.
She works in series, developing a theme, but giving her attention to each piece individually. She first researches and gathers the information necessary to develop her theme. These initial ideas or images are then combined with an intuitive sense of placement, color, texture and line allowing the work to develop freely.
She enjoys experimenting and exploring new visual avenues in order to grow and change.
For her being an artist is a quest for self-discovery. It is a process of exploration, and self-awareness. It is the drive to find her own creative spirit and language.
