Carol Ruff Franza
Carol Ruff Franza’s highly textured and strongly sensitive works are not limited by reality; they are fluid impressions of life. She expresses impressions without becoming stagnantly photo-realistic. Anatomical structure at times gives way to haptic distortion, which captures the essence of the subject. Motion, rhythm, and energy are all evident, as the art becomes the vessel that contains the spirit. Dreams and moments of walking in the rich Sonoran Desert provide a never-ending stream of abundant fuel. Her original artwork is diverse and constantly evolving. Her portfolio contains animals, figures and creatures of her imagination.
