Carr is an artist whose work encompasses painting, textiles and teaching. Residing in Western Massachusetts, she creates her art drawing inspiration from the natural beauty of the Berkshires.
Carr’s exhibit at the park is a materials exploration with textiles: dyes, threads, yarn, and mattress ticking. Mattress ticking conjures associations with antique mattresses, beds, tents and dormitories. Carr uses the fabric to evoke a place of rest, meditation and dreaming and hence the imagination—the subconscious and collective consciousness. Using bedding metaphorically, Carr re-patterns the patterns, breaking up the stripes by cutting and piecing to reinsert time and care. The utilitarian fabric is remade into an abstract work of art, transformed and reinterpreted.
Carr’s work will be on display from December 2-30th.
