“Contemplation,” an original mixed-media painting by Asheville-based artist Carol Fetty, invites us to take a moment to get lost in thought. A profound expression of inner stillness and depth, this painting captures a quiet moment of self-reflection, featuring a woman embracing her knees, curled into a ball, clearly locked inside her own head.

This piece is a stunning representation of contemporary portraiture, resonant with the artistic soul of Asheville, NC. It is an ideal acquisition for collectors and decorators with a taste for emotive and narrative art. It invites viewers to pause and engage in their own inner world, slowing down long enough to project their inner thoughts onto the woman, shedding light on the parts of themselves that beg to be sat with.

The contrast between the dark hair and clothing of the woman against the yellow
background is representative of the idea that so often our needs as humans contrast with the demands of our modern lives. The vibrant yellow hues demand attention, but the woman chooses to ignore the demand and sit with her thoughts in the still and quiet dark. Forgetting our humanity to meet the demands of our lives is just not sustainable, and in any space “Contemplation” will serve as a reminder to honor our humanity above all.
