"If Carmen Miranda had made paintings," is how Roberta Smith mused about Caroline Larsen's exuberant body of work earlier this year. Larsen creates her vibrant and tactile compositions by layering oil paint in embroidery-like stitches through pastry tubes, resulting in buoyant landscapes, kaleidoscopic still lives, and dynamic flora. In Larsen's Pool Party series, now available through Exhibition A, she employs her characteristic piping process to render nine unique scenes that ooze summertime serenity. Larsen created each of these unique paintings by hand in her Brooklyn studio.
