Light paints the air, the space. It enters the room, connecting the outside with the in. It takes on its own form. Forms and repetition of basic colored geometric forms manipulate their surroundings, they play with our perception. They become foreground. Background. Tension.
Carrie’s work examines our perception of light and density of interactions of color. Her work has been described as decorative, as design and as kitsch, descriptions she embraces. Her work questions the sanctity of pure, reduced beauty. As a product of consumerism, she often uses packaging material (cardboard boxes, inexpensive wood similar to material used to make transportation crates) to create her work. At times, she also uses appropriation of the minimalists, as readily as she also appropriates from the geometric, mass-produced world around her.
