What appears to be a woven portrait is actually an oil painting by Caroline Larsen, whose intricate style combines two distinct forms of portraiture. These illustrations show the artist's ability to harmoniously adapt various art forms into one piece.

The new gallery by Caroline Larsen is called P.A.N.A.M.A. R.E.N.A. and depicts several large ocean liners that the artist has come across throughout her travels. The bright, solid colors, combined with the representation of patterned material, creates an image that illustrates a combination of between artistic influences while retaining an authentic composition. Fluctuating between intensity and tranquility, these paintings by Caroline Larsen allude to tragic or tense situations while maintaining a grounded, unimposing sense of comfort.
