Carolennys Oullette: Oil on Canvas

Born in the Dominican Republic, Carolennys Oullette has been drawing since she could hold a pencil. She knew she wanted to be an artist from a very young age. However, it wasn’t until she was 14 years old, and living in Jacksonville, FL, where she had the opportunity to attend the nationally recognized Douglas Anderson School of the Arts, and began to receive formal training. There she fell in love with painting. In college, she learned the complexity and versatility of oil paints. Coupled with her love of the human figure, she knew this would be the subject matter and oil would be the medium that would consume all of her works, carrying the message she wished to share with the world. Compassion.

The Scarf

“A starving man, a woman in pain, a crowd of faceless mimes; it doesn’t matter who they are, because they simply, ‘just are.’ There is no distinction between them or us, you or me; we are all the same. We are one. It is a matter of our souls, and of the universe. If we cannot understand each other, we cannot understand this world or our purpose in it. My artwork endeavors to discover the mystery that is contained in the expressions of humanity, and perhaps draw people closer to understanding the complexities of our own nature.” (Artist Statement)

  1. People no matter where they live on the planet share the same souls we are, all trying to make a life for our self’s and our families finding serenity a state of being a purpose for our existing on this planet, making our mark so the planet would know that we were here our individualism of self but being part of a whole at the same time in life and space

    we all the same faceless, no features, no emotion. we are what we give and show to the world. only when we solve the mystery of humanity can we claim our own personal image. i like the artist choice of color and theme for the canvas.

    Oullete’s first painting is very heart warming. It’s about a scarf and the scarf represents togetherness. It has brought together these two kids and woman. Her second painting shows one person away from a crowd, as though she’s an outcast. I think the picture is more like a message because in reality some people are treated that way even though we are all the same.
