Catherine Couturier Gallery presents the work of Patty Carroll in her debut solo exhibition in Houston entitled Domestic Demise.
About the Artist
Patty Carroll is a fine art photographer based in Chicago, Illinois who has been known for her use of highly intense, saturated color photographs since the 1970’s. Her most recent project, “Anonymous Women,” consists of a 3-part series of studio installations made for the camera, addressing women and their complicated relationships with domesticity. By camouflaging the figure in drapery and/or domestic objects, Carroll creates a dark yet humorous game of hide-and-seek between her viewers and the Anonymous Woman. The exhibition at Catherine Couturier Gallery will feature large scale images from her latest narrative, “Demise,” where the woman becomes the victim of dramatic domestic disasters. Her activities, obsessions and objects overwhelm and consume her making space that surrounds her a site of unexpected tragedy. The scenes of her tragic end are loosely inspired by several sources including the game of Clue, where murder occurs in one of five rooms of the house: Dining Room, Kitchen, Hall, Conservatory, and Library.
