Caroline Gore

Kalamazoo, MI
May 1 - July 30, 2008
Mixed Media

The outcomes of Caroline Gore's studio practice vary in media, scale and implementation - ranging from small-scale body adornment to large sculptural installations. In her current body of work, she neutrally observes environments that she inhabits, creating site-specific interventions by marking elements of these spaces with gold leaf. A dialogue is then created between art and the everyday lives of individuals with the placement of the work as it is exists in the public sphere, often in the street, and seldom noticed. Gore developed this concept in response to 'in-attentional' blindness ' or transparency ' that often does not allow us to actually see our everyday habitat. In addition to exhibiting internationally, she lectures on the placement of current conceptual patterns in the metals/jewelry field and teaches workshops on making processes from ideation to implementation. Gore received her MFA from East Carolina University (Greenville, NC) and a BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University (Richmond, VA), and she is an assistant professor of art at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, MI where she lives and works.
