Artist Statement
Carol Gander Artist Statement Fall, 2018 In my work, I attempt to convey a sense of the singularity of a particular place, both in terms of how it has been used over time and how it changes daily and seasonally due to the influence of light and weather. Recently I have become interested in using aspects of the landscape metaphorically, as stand-ins for my feelings about a place. Most of the time, the knowledge that the work is metaphorical comes to me after experiencing the particular landscape over time. In each case, I try to build on the metaphor while progressing the work. Lately, I have become interested in making my work more meditative, both from the viewpoint of the artist and the viewer. I find that making photographs that can be interpreted in multiple ways enhances the meditative experience. I am currently looking at Tantra Art and listening to Bach fugues and the music of Morton Feldman and Philip Glass in order to study meditative form.
