Carrie Fell’s compilation of works depicts the traditional icons of the Western landscape with a thoroughly modern twist using vibrant colors and fluid forms. This is the New West – the west as a “state of mind” – a place of change with an attitude of boldness. Carrie’s artwork is free spirited – her paintings and designs offer a sophisticated, yet fresh, style that appeals to the maverick within each of us.
Using the high country as a source of inspiration, Carrie’s art does not attempt to portray a western lifestyle but rather an illusion. Her evolving artistic expressions are both prolific and progressive whether it be her quintessential subjects, the more modern social scenes or the contemporary abstract works. Carrie’s multi-faceted approach to her artwork includes fluid techniques in mixed media on both paper and canvas and has expanded to include a new collection of bronze sculptures.
In 2007, the Booth Western Art Museum in Cartersville, Georgia acquired her original painting, “Crazy Mountain Saddle Slickers” for their permanent collection. In 2010, her original painting, “Rusty and Calamity” was acquired by the Desert Caballeros Western Museum in Wickenburg as part of their permanent collection. For the 2015 FIS Downhill Alpine World Ski Championships Carrie was selected as the Official Artist to create a collection of colorful, bold skier images which were displayed and utilized to market the entire event and resulted in a monumental installation at the base of Beaver Creek, CO.
These accomplishments are a few highlights from Carrie’s extensive portfolio and serve to enrich her collectors overall experience.
