With references to Japanese artistic traditions, Chinese robes & Tibetan iconography, Trotter Hardy & Caroline Garrett Hardy take a radically different approach to art, but share a strong common theme: a fascination with Asian culture, as expressed in art & spirituality.
Replete with symbols & narrative suggestions, Caroline’s kimonos are characterized by a profusion of colors, textures, shapes, symbols & words echoing Japanese design aesthetics. Trotter Hardy’s photographs reflect a calm & minimalist single-mindedness akin to simple Japanese & Chinese ink brush drawings often created by Buddhist monks.
Caroline Hardy received a BFA in Painting & Printmaking from Virginia Commonwealth University, an MA from Ohio State University & an MFA in Printmaking from Cranbrook Academy of Art. Caroline’s artwork has been exhibited in Berlin, Germany & at numerous galleries across the region. Learn about Caroline’s Abecedary project. Download a copy of her book.
