Artist Statement

"I try to express emotions through vibrant abstract colour-landscapes and symbolic bodies, especially faces. I’m interested in portraying today’s society and the individual’s emotions within the society. Emotions about decision making, relationships and purpose and the world in general. Particularly the decision of being one element in the chain or being a self-determined outsider concerns me. Often I illustrate the weight one has to carry (expectations of the environment and society in general) with symbolic earrings."

Biography

Carina Schubert lives and works in Vienna, Austria. The daughter of an entrepreneur and a primary school teacher was born and raised in Vienna. From the earliest age Carina Schubert discovered painting, drawing and writing as her passions and as invaluable means of expressing her emotions. Nevertheless, she has been always torn between two worlds. Between being a visual Artist and working in the field of communications. Besides not completed studies such as Architecture and Art Therapy, Carina Schubert acquired a Bachelors Degree in Corporate Communications and a Masters Degree in Executive Management – Entrepreneurship.

 

Her stays abroad, far away from her personal environment, were essential for her artistic development. Her 6-month stay on Hawai’i made her perceive colours in a more vibrant way and during her 10-month stay in Florida she developed a symbolic figurative language, expressing emotions through bodies and faces. Although Carina Schubert has been working several years full-time in the marketing and business sector in national and international companies, she is using every spare minute to produce art and to organize exhibitions of her artwork.
