CAROLYN MARKS BLACKWOOD

 

Born in Anchorage, Alaska, in 1961, her family soon moved to New York. She graduated in art from Livingston College (Rutgers University, New Jersey). She worked as a singer, composer, scriptwriter and film producer before devoting herself to photography. In 2006 she was invited to participate in a group show at the Morton Library in Rhinebeck and her images of the Hudson River attracted curator Barbara Rose, who in 2007 included her in The magic hour (Paul Rodgers/9W Gallery, New York). Since then she has exhibited in museums and galleries in the USA and abroad. In 2015, Artnet News included her in its piece Five artist to watch: the photography edition. Her most recent exhibitions include On the edge (Von Lintel Gallery, Los Angeles, 2015) and The Story Series (Roberto Polo Gallery, Brussels, 2017). Her main source of inspiration is the stunning nature she sees from her home in Rhinecliff, on a cliff overlooking the Hudson and the Catskill Mountains. Influenced by abstract painting, she experiments with scale, deconstruction and a perspective that allows us to see the grandeur hidden in small details.

The exhibition aims to convey the feelings aroused in her by the atmosphere and light in conditions as snow, rain, or the uncertain twilight hours, as well as by some eerie buildings. After having taken each photograph she adds a text so as to turn it into a story.
