Carol Cornelison

Her sculptural assemblages in bronze fuse the experiences of her life with materials and fragments from her immediate environment. Visually, portions of the female anatomy and forms from nature become the compositional elements of her complex installations. Since they are constructed of disparate motifs they can be assembled in a variety of ways, inviting multiple references to memory and imagination, reality and surreality. Charged with tension and expression the work of this artist presents her ultimate message, as she phrases it “the union of the spiritual and the material.”
