JOYCE MARQUESS CAREY
|I have been creating one-of-a-kind sewn
fiberworks for over 25 years. My specialty is large-scale, site-specific
works. My pieces have been commissioned by religious institutions,
prisons, schools, hospitals, commercial and residential clients from Alaska
to Florida and most states in between. I often incorporate playfulness,
and hope that my work enhances the space in which people work, play and
My works are often characterized by optical illusions, and are sewn in brightly colored fabrics. I use commercial and found fabrics of every color and texture. I love the contrast of matte versus shiny, and creating the illusion of space in two dimensions. I also create narrative works, which have been exhibited nationally and in juried, invitational and solo shows.
