Longtime Portland resident Sidonie Caron’s works are diverse in subject matter and style—from impressionistic paintings of Portland cityscapes to realist renderings of European synagogues to abstract canvases rich in color and vitality. The world Caron creates on canvas is simultaneously deeply introspective and outward looking; her work reflects the profound connections between the individual, family, community and society. Caron’s paintings and collages illuminate what it means for Caron to be an artist who is Jewish. Caron originally hails from England, and attended St. Martin’s School of Art in London. Her work is represented in public and private collections around the world.
