Gift of the Marie Eccles Caine Foundation
Though originally a painter, Carson has experimented with a variety of materials and methods such as collage, fabric, light boxes, and large installations. Her body of work is notable for its constant and dramatic changes in style and subject matter, a quality that some critics have said caused her to be overlooked by major art institutions in the United States. Carson’s work has gone between abstraction and figure painting, but is consistent in representing the changes that Carson observes in both nature and culture. Carson has said that many viewers believe her works are satire, but she actually sees them as literal and serious expressions of the spiritual commotion of her daily life.
