Carrie Crane is a multimedia artist who creates drawings, sculpture and installations that reflect the balance between science and art. Crane blends maps, diagrams and graphs with ink or paint to create a surrealistic unique way of representing the landscape.
“As I paint, I find I am pulled more toward the surreal and imaginary, and less toward representing the world as we actually see it. I find there is humor, wonder, and hope in our natural world–and those things are more likely to rise to the surface the less I try to paint what is obvious to the eye.”
Carrie is having a solo exhibition at the Fitchburg Art Museum from June 21 – September 6. 2019.
