Statement:
I began sculpting in 1993, a few years after moving to the Bay Area.  Sculpture soon grew to be my primary form of artistic expression, with water-based clay as a medium, leading to loose representations of the human form.  I recently embarked in a new direction, producing high-polish classically finished bronzes with a contemporary feel.
I approach art in two ways:  I seek to express the beauty of form, and secondly I use form to communicate mood and emotion.  I work directly from the model, usually in plastalina.  After working the piece in the looser clay medium, I finish it in resin, arriving at a final “pattern” when the work satisfies me both as representation and as form. I find deep satisfaction in figurative as well as abstract work, and believe that the best sculpture incorporates elements of both.    
My current major project is a commission, the life-size memorial to George Hasslein, dean of the College of Architecture and Environmental Design at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.

Brief Description:
Carol Tarzier’s artistic output centers on figurative bronzes and pastel drawings on black paper, as well as oil painting and abstract sculpture in bronze. In addition to numerous solo exhibitions in California and Nevada, she has received multiple awards and professional accolades nationwide.

Tarzier's recent focus has been on commissioned projects, initially with an eight-foot bronze memorial to C.L. Dellums, the Oakland-based civil rights leader, unveiled at the Jack London Square train station bearing Dellums’ name, in December of 1999.  She completed a privately commissioned abstract bronze, Obelisk 1, a nine-foot sculpture for a outdoor setting in Portola.  Her current project, nearing completion, is a life-size memorial to Professor George Hasslein at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. She divides her time between new figurative projects in her Oakland studio and teaching at the Academy of Art College in San Francisco and City College of San Francisco.
