Installation and drawings
by Olivia A. Carter
A master of meaningful objects, Olivia A. Carter persistently constructs monuments to loved ones who live in her memory. Having lost precious mementos, and missed opportunities for final goodbyes, Carter is on a constant quest to recreate the feeling and presence of those persons. Fading memories can sometimes include convincing personal fiction and Carter embraces the invented narrative. In our hearts we piece together the missing person, the storyline, the ephemera… and perhaps fall into another dream portal.
Carter’s installations consist of meaningful found objects, that once were possessed by someone now gone, as well as the artist’s own drawings. Items such as scraps of paper, jewelry, picture frames, or fabric are physical manifestation and touchstones to the beloved. Stylistically rendered mountains and valleys of her childhood provide more clues amongst the adopted heirlooms.
