Natural born artist, composing creative images (and working for years on photography shoots…), always seeking the thrill of technical challenges, Caroline Bergonzi ended up studying figurative arts at the Art Students League of New York. Nelson Shanks’ clear and clean methodology was a promise she could not resist. His passion for the colors as well as his “color studies” technique opened a new horizon and vocabulary. “It is easier to dull a strong color than to wake up a dead one.” Since 2007, she has constantly refined her drawing and grisaille* technique.
In Caroline’s 2010 solo exhibition catalog, His Highness Mr. Rene Novella, Private Advisor to the Prince of Monaco, wrote “... she chose the portrait, with an impressive success which makes me predict that she will reach there the perfection of her incontestable talent...”
Caroline received several grants for the quality of her work. In Philadelphia (Studio Incamminati) and in New York. She also learned a lot from Costa Vavagiakis, whom she considers a master at modeling shapes and rendering a 3D effect.
* Grisaille is a monochromatic painting, traditionally used as an under painting.
