Carol Wisker: Wrapped & Unwrapped


November 5 - November 30, 2014

First Friday: November 7, 5 - 9 pm

Artists Reception: Sunday, November 9, 1 - 4 pm

Carol Wisker’s background in painting and drawing continues to inform her love of texture, line, repetition and excess in sculpture and installation, combining found wood and rubber dimensional forms with cotton fibers, silk cocoons and colored synthetic, silk and rayon cording that are wrapped and unwrapped, frayed, knotted, twisted, braided and deconstructed into tendrils.  Traditional domestic materials, such as tassels and braiding, are used in a nontraditional manner creating strings and ” lumps and bumps” in humorous and decorative ways on spheres, columns and multitudes of cones, both grounded and floating.

“Wrapped and Unwrapped” is Wisker’s sixth solo exhibition with the 3rd Street Gallery.
