  • Carolyn Salas

    Carolyn Salas

    New York, NY, United States, b. 1979
    Oscillating between abstraction and figuration between site-specific works and sculpture, Carolyn Salas (b. Hollywood, California) uses a wide array of materials including: plaster, cement, ceramics, found objects, collage, craft oriented assemblages, and fabric. With laborious craft and a handmade touch, the imperfections and human attributes of burdens, failures and achievements of our everyday are exposed. Salas is interested in the “in-between” stages; the tension that lies both within the physical space and the psychological space. The work speaks to interactions between human civilizations, hierarchical powers of societal success, relationships, and nature with an emotional resonance that takes the works beyond any one of these single issues and into a universal realm. Carolyn Salas received a BFA in sculpture from College of Santa Fe and a MFA from CUNY Hunter College. Museums exhibitions include: The Torrance Art Museum, Torrance, CA; Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art, Peekskill, NY; The Berkshire Museum, Pittsfield, MA; Urbis City Center, Manchester, UK; and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara, CA. She has participated in the residency programs at Abrons Art Center, NY, AIR program, NY, NARS Foundation, NY, and the Fountainhead Residency, FL. Salas currently teaches sculpture at Yale University. Salas lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
