Carr’s assemblages consist of discarded objects, such as marbles, action figures, and electronics. Her work is a reminder of our collective history, and observing it is an act of remembering and re-interpreting.
Aletha Carr received her Master of Fine Arts degree from Florida State University, before moving to Spring Hill, Tennessee to teach at a university level. Her work has been exhibited throughout the Southeast and is in many private and corporate collections, including Columbia State Community College, Columbia, TN., Bank of America, Jacksonville, FL., and Delta Airlines, Jacksonville FL.
“I am a hunter and a gatherer of the lost and forgotten. These assemblages of discarded objects are a subliminal reminder of our collective history, and observing them is an act of remembering and re-interpreting, admittance that every detail can have meaning.
I am a curator of time, but you, the viewer, are the artist.”
