Carol Wax draws, paints and engraves still life images that explore symbolic meanings in inanimate objects. Her renderings of old typewriters, sewing machines, vintage toys, and other industrial relics reflect a film-noir influence that imbues her subjects with psychological undertones, revealing humor and menace in our possessions.

Carol’s prints are in numerous collections including The Smithsonian, Philadelphia, and Metropolitan Museums of Art, and Boston and New York Public Libraries. Awards include two New York Foundation for the Arts Grants, an Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Foundation Individual Support grant, the Louise Nevelson Award for Excellence in Printmaking from The American Academy of Arts and Letters, and residencies at The MacDowell Colony and Marie Walsh Sharpe Art Foundation. The newly revised Second Edition of her book, THE MEZZOTINT: HISTORY AND TECHNIQUE has just been published.
