Carrie Childs Antonini


In Carrie's paintings marks have flatness in refernce to the surface, and remain inside the physical frame, floating and transitory like forms on a stage.

In her sculptural installations objects are minimal and pronounce the space that viewer and objects occupy together. 

For Carrie each form or mark represents a sort of body, and often multiple bodies exist in relationship. The forms may have animate qualities like action or passivity, personality, intent or emotion. Carrie also plays with systems of placement and repetitive action, reflecting on our human tendency to give order to things and find rest through repetition. Her paintings and installations are about lingering in a space where the analytical mind mixes with the wonders of vision, sense of place, body and self.
