“My constructed domes are provocative symbols that invoke the idea of the universe and physical objects that allude to real-life structures. In my “canopies,” I explore a number of mathematical models that physicists developed to explain our universe. The mathematics of my expressed geometries offer a spiritual force that organizes structures from the microscopic to the political. Here, geometry isn't simply abstract but creates a real world, sustained by its own logic. As artists and scientists seek to explain our place, I join the most advanced daydreamers – those who imaginatively visualize a creative matrix and explore otherworldly possibilities – those who embrace indeterminacy and the fundamentally unstable boundaries between infinitesimal and immeasurable realms.”
— Carol Prusa

Carol Prusa’s recent work, on display in this exhibition, consists of acrylic hemispheres ranging from bowl-sized to five feet in diameter, articulated with silverpoint drawing and graphite on the convex illuminated surfaces, punctuated by patterns of fiber optic lights. Prusa was recently named an “Artist to Watch” by Art Economist Magazine. In their profile of her work, contributing editor Kara Walker Tomé writes, “Carol Prusa creates a new vision of the powers of the universe in each artwork she makes. Inspired by cosmology and all of the natural sciences, Prusa creatively explores these practices, arriving at pictorially stunning re-interpretations of their theories.”
