Quadrica del Sole, 1992

Carolyn Krieg
(American, born 1953)

Location: Walter Strom Middle School, Cle Elum


Quadrica del Sole is part of artist Carolyn Krieg's 'Fauna' series of unique manipulated photographs. This series is based on film the artist took while working at a wildlife rehabilitation center and at a riding school for the disabled. She notes, "In this series I was suggesting fossilized imprints from the past, or sepia images of long dead relatives."

This artwork was acquired for the State Art Collection in partnership with Cle Elum-Roslyn School District.


Interested in psyche and spirit, artist Carolyn Krieg draws her subject matter from literature, memory and dreams. Her works are composed by manipulating photo negatives and Polaroid instant film with painted and printed layers. Her world travels influence her art.
Krieg studied at the University of Washington in Seattle and at Marylhurst College in Oregon. She received a Bachelor of Arts degree in French from the University of California, Santa Barbara.
