"No doubt the fluidity of water symbolizes Caracciolo's emotional, and above all, creative process. Her primary creativity, expressing itself in the spontaneity of her gestures, in their ecstatic vitality, conveyed by delicate and assertive touches, harmoniously intertwined in energy. Caracciolo has looked at the real sea, observed its movement carefully. For in many of her works one senses the depth beneath the surface, indeed, depth uncannily becoming surface."—Donald Kuspit, critic
