Caroyln Morris Bach lives on seventy acres of woodlands. Her studio is surrounded by pastures and forests and is impacted by the cycles of seasons, which connect her to the natural environment and its visual expression in figurative imagery.
For 30 years, her work has developed along themes keyed to visual metaphors. These metaphors are often found in older iconographies, representing the powers of the sun, moon, wind, rain, stones, plants and animal residents of a rural, non-industrial landscape.
Bach is a graduate of Rhode Island School of Design and her work is found in numerous musuem collections including Boston Musuem of Fine Arts (Boston, MA), Musuem of Arts and Design (NY,NY), Fuller Craft Museum (Brockton, MA), and Racine Art Museum (Racine, WI). Her work is widely collected both in America and abroad, and recognized by several organizations with awards of merit from the Smithsonian Institution, American Craft Museum, Philidelphia Museum of Art and a National Endowment for The Arts grant.
