Featuring work by: Carolyn Carr

Opening Reception: Fri, Sep 19, 6pm - 9pm

We are also excited to exhibit an installation of photography and sculpture by Atlanta- native Carolyn Carr. She is known for her compelling abstract paintings of interwoven curvilinear lines that are derived from captured graffiti signatures-which is not just nod to form but also acts as signifier for content. Graffiti, an unknown font, is a recognizable mark of self-expression, via a personal signature. Carr's interest in text and narrative has been an ongoing and vital component to her work that has been explored through her titles and interests in film and literature. These culturally significant references are derived from a wide range of sources spanning historical periods, platforms, and various means of distribution. There are recognizable art historical references rampant in this work which Carr makes it her own by manipulating what she has taken, found, and appropriated to create a ripe non-linear narrative that is evocative-yet enigmatic.

Carolyn Carr received her BFA from the Atlanta College of Art (with a focus on Photography). Her work has been shown in numerous solo and group exhibitions at museums and galleries including Gavlak (New York, Palm Beach), Artists Space (New York), 10 Chancery Lane (Hong Kong), National Museum of Women (Washington DC), the Contemporary, David Heath and Fay Gold (Atlanta). Recently she completed a site-specific Flux.org work entitled, Tomorrow is Another Day. In addition to her studio practice Carr is on a number of institutional boards as well as being an activist for local community and political organizations.
