Art Faculty Member Pat De Caro says the following about her work:
“I’m engaged in how the space of childhood resurfaces and defines our sense of self by evoking memory of place and forgotten, familiar moments we share in our collective histories. I often center on portraying the interior “self” that is separate from the public world. An integral component to my themes is the layering of visual elements that “conceal” and “reveal” that has led me through a variety of form and media; three dimensional pattern, reflections and mirrors, and shifting perspectives of light and shadow. By employing layers of “blackness” in recent works, their depths in my compositions become visibly penetrable to evoke a deeper place. In this way I seek to capture the tension between remembering and forgetting, the past and the present, and a meditation on childhood and loss.”
De Caro’s works are included in the 2013 Faculty Exhibit now on display through November 8.
