Artist Talk: PRESENT HISTORY: A Visual Documentation of Urban Environment

Stacey Carter’s artwork serves as a visual document of the surrounding urban environment. Her multimedia compositions are based on photographs that are transformed by use of skilled printmaking technique combined with loose expressionistic hand painting. Layered and compositionally rich, her art is a study of how experiences define one’s environment, an acknowledgement of what has passed and its importance to the present. Her work tends to “freeze time,” making a platform for individual histories to be recalled and shared once more.
