“Those languorous moments that slow time to a standstill – moments of complete intimacy or mindless preoccupation, those moments when one is intensely alive, when every fiber of one’s being is occupied – are Carrie McGee’s inspiration.” – National Endowment for the Arts

I first saw Carrie’s work a few months ago in a local magazine – which one I do not recall. What I do recall is seeing a beautifully decorated room with an odd – yet visually striking – installation of art on the wall. It resembled a strand of glass beads, like an oversized bracelet strung up to be admired. As an art lover and a jewelry maker (in my spare time), I fell in love with her designs.

“Carrie McGee’s mixed media constructions explore variation within repeated forms. Utilizing transparent plastics as a ground, she experiments with natural and chemical processes, such as rust and oxidation, to create luminous works that emanate a meditative pulse”-Carrie’s bio on her website

Her work can be found at: Center of the Earth Gallery in Charlotte; Cumberland Gallery in Nashville and at Lanoue Fine Art in Boston (Newbury Street).
