Carol Scavotto

I am a narrative conceptual artist working within multi-media which can including collage, drawing, photography, painting, installation and performance. My choice of media is based on the statement of each project. My work addresses identity, relationships, traditions and responsibility to our personal and public environment. As I often combine these methods of creating, a narrative quality weaves itself through the various series building upon one another.

 Carol Scavotto is a multi media artist, who lives and works in Rhode Island. The theme of her art is identity, relationships and human instinct.

Her work often incorporates several elements: 2D/3D visual, video and performance. Her recent collage works develop slowly in a process of construction and deconstruction, images and objects intertwine as the textural image takes on an identity.

Scavotto received her BFA from University of Massachusetts Amherst. 

Establishing a presence in New York she has taken  part in NYC Art Mora's residency program and Dacia Gallery NYC intensive residency program. Her work has been shown at the Fountain Art Fair, Clio Art Fair, Fridge Art Fair, Affordable Art Fair NYC, The WAH Center and Call for Chelsea.   

Internationally Carol’s work has been shown with Dacia Gallery’s Universal Art Project, the Affordable Art Fair Amsterdam-BA Contemporary, Art Busan Korea-Art Mora, CICA Museum in Korea, Asia Contemporary Hong Kong-BA contemporary
