Stacey Carter - Room 303
I am an artist whose work offers insight into the changing urban environment through creative observation. My artworks are layered multi media compositions based on a photograph which I transform using a unique combination of printmaking technique and spontaneous expressionistic painting.
My body of work is a study of how individual experiences define one’s environment. The subject matter is monumental structures representing a past I want to preserve. Like sudden nostalgia brought on by a forgotten taste, smell or sound, the transformed images outlived their purpose become important symbols of time and place that echo a collective experience. Often it is only through unexpected loss that the value of what has gone is realized. My work is an acknowledgement of what has passed and its importance to the present. This past can be any time from just a mere moment ago to something taken many years before. Familiar imagery can freeze time, allowing individual histories to be recalled and shared once more.
