Sponsored by:

Tufts Alumni New York

Location: Gitler &_____
3629 Broadway
New York, NY 10031 | See Map

When: Saturday, April 01, 2017 - Thursday, April 20, 2017 (iCal)


Susan Carr’s Headspace will be composed of new and recent mixed-media works, including painting and sculpture as well as found wood pieces, all using oil paint as the common denominator. Carr’s own abstract language is angular and painterly; her broad brushstrokes are cast defiantly at times throughout the picture plane, creating a visual struggle that feels deliberate and personal, while at other moments her motions yield fluid forms within an intimate color field. To whatever extent Carr incorporates autobiographical references in her work, the artist’s poetry is rendered in viscous oil, and her storytelling style can be likened to oral history – in the moment and evolving with each daub and swipe.

Carr’s show title Headspace is a reference to her artistic process, and the vital roles that meditation and concentration play as she renders paintings in sculptural form.
