Description
Much like her husband Paul’s photorealist paintings and her son Peter’s video works Carol Sarkisian’s artwork transforms everyday objects. The application of gold and silver leaf, glass beads and rhinestones alter this found object into something magical and indulgent with a character that far exceeds its diminutive scale.
