Carol Prusa

Artist Statement Submitted 2020

Drawn to the unknown, I seek new ways to explain our place. I desire to manifest the most complete understanding of my world, offering new ways of knowing. Specifically, digesting contemporary cosmologies in astronomy and physics and seeking liminal spaces (like eclipses, night skies), is resulting in work that creates worlds with erotically charged geometries. Known for large scale silverpoint drawings incorporating sculptural forms and new technologies, I yearn to realize a radical vision that takes into account chaotic interactions central to the evolution of the universe, to unearth its vital beauty. I seek to give form to thin spaces that evoke the dark matter that both surrounds and threads us together. As Mary Oliver beautifully wrote in Upstream, “ Its (arts) concern is the edge, and the making of a form out of the formlessness that is beyond the edge.”
