Using simple handmade stamps and other mixed media elements, these new 2D works explore energy, movement and light. The pieces feature symbols of eyes, bees and radiating lines, and also look at themes of outer space. Much of the work incorporates accessible print methods, including image transfers and woodcut stamps, and evoke ethereal compositions. The works have been influenced by colony collapse disorder, divine geometry and physical properties of light. They have also been influenced by the Italian art movement called Arte Povera, in which common, everyday materials are used to create fine art. From New York City, Carla Aspenberg earned her BA in studio art at Bard College and her MFA in sculpture at Brooklyn College of the City University of New York. She has studied independently at the art institution Weissensee Kunsthochschule in Berlin, Germany. She has had solo exhibitions at the Invisible Hand Gallery in Lawrence, Kansas and at the Elizabeth Tapper Gallery at Pilchuck Glass School in Stanwood, Washington. She has been an artist-in-residence at Pilchuck Glass School, Wilson College, and the Vermont Studio Center.
