Carol Bishop

Carol Bishop is Associate Professor of Art at Los Angeles Valley College and teaches courses in art history, advanced drawing, painting, and design. She received her undergraduate and graduate degrees at Northern Illinois University, DeKalb and her Ph.D. at Union University in Cincinnati. Bishop’s paintings, photographs and installations reflect ideas on architecture and place. Her work is informed by the character of structures and the people who build, design, finance, or use them. Rather than documenting forms, Bishop is interested in connecting to environments, sites, places and buildings to pull rhythms and ideas in search of the essential spirit. Her artwork has been exhibited nationally and internationally in countries such as Germany, Italy and France. Frank Lloyd Wright: The Romantic Spirit was a solo exhibition of Bishop’s photographs that was presented at the Huntington Museum in San Marino and the Mona Bismarck Museum in Paris. Another notable show is Fantome: Memory and Dream of I.M. Pei,  which marks the first living American woman to have a solo exhibition at the Louvre in Paris. Bishop has received the Sony Corporation Per Cent for Art commission and was chosen as a recipient of the Pomona “Envisioning the Future” photography artist award. She was an artist in residence in Herzliya, Israel, as well as Hochschule Neiderrheim in Krefeld, Germany.
