About the Art   -  Artist Statement
Retreat


Carrie has chosen the figure as her principle artistic subject. 
“I feel the nude is the most essential, meaningful way to represent the human form. 
It is when we are the most raw, vulnerable, beautiful and readable.” 

Carrie views the role of art as one of communication and connection. 
“My work explores the universal expressive language of the human body.  Each of us has felt joy, sensuality, loneliness, melancholy, etc.  I want viewers to see these expressions in my work and engage in a dialogue with the figures.  By identifying with an image, and perhaps creating a personal story around the figure, the viewer might better understand that the human condition is shared,
that we are never really alone.”
