Item description for Carol Rama by Guido Curto, Giorgio Verzotti & Judith Russi Kirshner...

Self-taught artist Carol Rama's unconventional painting encompasses an erotic, even sexually aggressive universe populated by "mutated" characters who present themes of sexual identity with specific references to female sensuality. This catalog of a major retrospective of Rama's work-over 150 pieces in all-at the Fondazione Sandretto de Rebaudengo was organized in conjunction with MART in Rovereto and is a crowning document to her career.

Reviews - What do customers think about Carol Rama?

The Rambunctious and Racy Carol Rama  Jul 11, 2009
Not very well known in America, 90 year old Italian artist Carol Rama is, simply put, one of the best and bravest artists on the planet. Beginning with her iconoclastic paintings of the late 1930s, Rama tapped into the fractured psyche of the Europeans as they were dealt the blows of faschism, nazism, and a full blown war that tore apart the continent. Rama's work reflects this fragmentation, along with its inherent cruelty, in a style like no one else's.

Rama seems to have anticipated every major art movement of the post-war era--from Art Brut to the unclassifiable styles of the Italian Trans Avangardia, to abstract expressionism, and the new figuration of Neo-Expressionism. She also works with collage using found materials like rubber, old syringes, and various types of diagrams. Rama is totally her own artist, beholden to none, and incredibly eccentric; her work is fascinating as hell, perverse, but oddly puritanical, though not quite hermetically sealed. She bares her soul in very unique ways and her work never fails to deliver its Orphic resonance, its difficult truths.
