CAROLE BAYER SAGER
Carole Bayer Sager has had a dream career in songwriting. Her list of honors and awards include an Academy Award, a GRAMMY Award, two Golden Globe Awards, a Tony Award, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, a Songwriter’s Hall of Fame induction, a Distinguished Alumni Award from the New York University Alumni Association and being honored by the L.A. Chapter of the Recording Academy.
She’s written a plethora of hit songs including Grammy-winning “That’s What Friends Are For,” the Oscar-winning “Arthur’s Theme,” and the Oscar nominated “The Prayer,” to “Don’t Cry Out Loud” and “On My Own.” These days though, Carole is focused on the visual arts — specifically painting.
Carole began painting as a hobby in 2006 and now her hobby has turned into her full-time passion and she has recently put on her first solo show at the LA Arthouse in Los Angeles. Her work is abstract, exploring color, texture and light. “Painting and songwriting have many similarities for me,” says Carole. “Both are intuitive and expressive and, just as in songwriting, it is rewarding when your painting touches another person.”
Carole’s latest collection came about after seeing one of her paintings through the camera’s lens and wanting to expand on the most intricate details in the piece. She then magnified these intricate selections, sometimes up to 100 times their normal size. This allowed her to explore and capture the beautiful details that would have been barely noticed by the human eye and turned them into their own full sized pieces.
