austI have posted many times in the past about artist Carol Aust. However, I fell in love with her all over again on my last trip to Wellfleet, MA where her work is shown at the Left Bank Gallery.

I particularly love her work “Couple Reading” which is currently on display there.

About artist Carol Aust: “Carol Aust works in acrylic on canvas and wood panels from her studio in Oakland, California. Her figurative paintings are emotionally-charged narrative fragments infused with mysterious tension and secrecy. She often places her figures in precarious environments where anything could happen. Sometimes celebratory, sometimes lonely and disturbing, her paintings express a wide range of human desire and yearning. Aust’s work consistently features strong and vibrant colors along with figures that are both engaging and vulnerable.”

The Left Bank Gallery is located at 25 Commercial Street in the charming seaside village of Wellfleet, near the tip of Cape Cod.
