Carrie Chisholm Artist Bio:
By reinterpreting media-based photography, Chisholm explores the facets of staging illusion. She has built her practice on exploring the philosophical themes of desire and fulfillment through the experience of wealth and the representation of beauty, considering the benefits and perils of conspicuous consumption resulting from lives bombarded with advertising. The source material encounters a botched developing at the hands of blind contour drawing and layers of acrylic glazes. The method of production shatters the source’s intended perspective, underscoring it’s value. The result is a radically altered view of the subject matter in which the spirit of the original photograph is retained just enough to preserve its lure. The works question the nature of an individual's capacity to resist and withhold, their capacity of free will: an alluring contradiction of pathos and critique.
