Kate Carr is an Alaska-born, New Mexico-based artist who says that “living in spaciousness” helps her “leave space in [my] work for things to occur.” Carr crafts her sculptures through repetitive processes like stacking and layering, using tactile everyday materials both soft and hard, such as plywood and felt. These works—which are often wall-mounted to resemble paintings—encompass a range of textures, densities, and weights. Although Carr’s sculptures are intensely material, they are formally abstract and rooted in a commitment to working with simple lines. Her works evoke the shaped canvases of the 1970s and ’80s, and she lists such feminist art pioneers as Agnes Martin, Eva Hesse, and Dorothea Rockburne among her influences.
