About Carolyn Guerra

Carolyn Guerra

Born in Chicago, Illinois, Carolyn Guerra received her B. A. degree in Artand English at Alverno College in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Carolyn continued her studies touring European museums and galleries and as a student of the Art Institute of Chicago where she studied drawing, painting, and printmaking.

Carolyn is a multi-media artist who is continuously discovering and creating. Currently her sculptural preoccupation is both in bronze and concrete sculptures enhanced with her own ceramic creations or found glass objects. The paradoxical themes of togetherness and opposition reoccur as in her earlier work. The contrasts manifest themselves both in the subject matter of the works and in her choices of materials; the juxtaposition of both smooth and excessive detailed textures in her bronze sculptures and the rough, matte finish of the concrete and the smooth, glossy surface of glass or glazed ceramic creations in her concrete sculptures.
