Carrie Chisholm, AOCAD, MFA is an award-winning artist/designer and communications professional who draws inspiration from her engagement with arts and culture communities and institutions at home and abroad. She is a strong proponent for capacity building in the culture sector and has made valuable contributions through events/project/operations management, business development, governance, strategic visioning and volunteerism.
When not championing her cause, Carrie methodically devotes her time to her mixed media art practice, interspersing 2D (drawing/painting) and 3D (sculpture/installation) applications. She is particularly fascinated with the optical affects and illusions generated by the elements of line, colour and light such as ornamentation, pattern, transparency, shadow-casting and reflection. Conceptually her work philosophically questions the nature of an individual's free will when confronted by the allure of consumerism.
These interests have been mined over the course of Carrie’s practice, which commenced after the completion of her studies in Florence, Italy in 2000.
