Caroline Crockett (CICI) is an artist living and working in Saint Petersburg, Florida. Her bright and funky work is inspired by her tropical environment; shells, plants, and birds are favorite subjects. While she has always been drawing and painting since childhood, as of late her work has a very specific direction.
She works recycled paint and plastic back into her paintings to create, shape, color and a 3D texture. The recycled paint are pieces chipped and peeled from her colorful palates and then re-adhered by painting them into her work. The recycled plastic pieces started as an artist hack; she was using plastic egg cartons as her palate. She is able to cut out pieces of these painted plastic palates and use them almost as if they were brush strokes themselves.
Caroline recently had a piece in “Orange” at the Morean Art Center (June 2021) and is on display locally at Machine Shop Barber at 915 Central Avenue.
