Carol Tolin

Galerie Juarez

Individual personality is the main attraction of this first one-man show. It comes through the pastiche of the artist’s admirations with surprising strength. Tolin shadows forth sensuous romanticism in odd interior colors; purple, magenta and turquoise. There is an almost fetishistic fascination with the female figure which is much further to the side of psychological involvement with subject than is ever true of her mentors—de Kooning, Diebenkorn, and Oliveira.

Tolin’s is a job well done but half completed. She must bring her drawing and composition up to the level of her feeling and color.
