My art is based on the ideas of unconscious thought. It is inspired by the ideas of Sigmund Freud, Carl Jung and other pioneers in psychiatry. While I overthink most things art is the one thing that I do that comes naturally without as much questioning.
Whether it is clay, printmaking or photography, my art is spontaneous.
This type of thought process applies to all parts of the process. From the construction of the piece,
to the color it is experimental with a seemingly rushed process.
Due to my process, my art is perceived as abstract and while there is some abstraction, there are also some realistic aspects.
However, those aspects are only implied. I am a big believer in viewers being able to interpret the art for themselves as well as the art bringing back their own thoughts and memories.

Carol began her formal training at The School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston majoring in Fine Arts and Art Glass. An avid outdoor painter, she has explored many places near her home base and abroad with painting-rig in tow. She has an extensive collection of sketchbook imagery that reflects these experiences, and that feeds her practice. Her studio work includes many facets of printmaking, painting and book arts.
"My creative process is an act of self-actualization with imagery that is both representational and abstract. I often find myself working without a plan, which makes the reduction process quite surprising, and satisfying."

Madeline Corsaro is a printmaker and painter based in Cheshire, NY. She received her BFA at Nazareth College in 2018 and now runs a printmaking studio at The Cheshire Union. In Cheshire, she teaches classes and helps other local artists market and sell their work. Madeline primarily creates monotypes, which are considered the “painterly print” as it involves simply painting with printmaking ink to create a singular, one of a kind image.
“My goal as an artist is to create work that speaks to what it means to be human. Subject matter such as the landscape and the figure are my jumping off points, while self reflection and observation are my ways of navigating the fall.”

Raechelle Hajduk is a printmaker from Rochester, New York. She attends Nazareth College, and is working towards a BFA in printmaking. She has been recognized by multiple organizations for her outstanding work and appeared in multiple exhibitions. She applies a stream-of-conscious method to her plates when inking to create surreal atmospheres. Lithography also allows for free flowing ideas and spontaneity within her work.
My work explores the dichotomy between the organic chaos of nature and the geometric organization of human-made architecture. I apply a stream-of-conscious method to monoprints, as I spontaneously alter the ink on the plate. Combining impulsivity with diligence creates a unique combination of textures and atmospheres within my work. My work is heavily inspired by architecture and nature trails around Rochester. Printmaking techniques such as hand coloring lithographs, continue to inspire me by referencing Currier and Ives, from the nineteenth century.
