Carin Kulb Dangot is a painter and sculptor, and she is interested in the materiality and plastic qualities of paint in surfaces––such as canvas, aluminum, and mylar- and in three-dimensional pieces.
Her work has been exhibited in art venues such as NY Live Arts (NY), Christie’s (NY), The Cluster Gallery (NY), Deanna Evans Project (NY), Governors Island (GIAF) (NY), Phyllis Harriman Mason Gallery (NY), Soho20 (NY), Augusta Savage Gallery (MA), Casa Galeria (São Paulo), and the Brazilian Museum of Sculpture – MUBE (São Paulo). In 2012, she was awarded both the Leonard Rosenfeld Merit Scholarship and Lloyd Sherwood Grant for outstanding work in non-objective art from the Art Students League; and, in 2020, awarded with The New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) Immigrant Artist Mentoring Program.
Dangot began her career as a food engineer, working in a chemistry lab in a cookie factory. She founded the company “Eat Chocolate” and went on to become a sought-after food designer for film and television, building set pieces such as spirals of ice cream and crispy tall french fries. She brings her love of mixing, melding and inventing new forms to the world of paint, color, volume and mass.
