A large-scale painting made with acrylic and faux flowers, 48" x 72", 2017.

Collective Effervescence describes a theory where members of a community or tribe collectively come together to achieve a goal without ever discussing the details with each other. In this painting, Caroline took inspiration from this idea and created a totem of herself. This totem depicts her necessary individualistic needs in caring for herself, supporting, and building herself up in being a strong independent person.
