January 23rd, 2015 – Octavia Carney

Octavia Carney (b.1984, Atlanta, Georgia) lives and works in Chicago. She earned her BFA with a Liberal Arts Thesis from School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She works sculpturally interrogating contemporary social constructions, through de/reconstructing both organic and mass-produced objects, revealing the change in meaning from material evolution. 3D scanning and printing processes represent the current unflinching consumerist desire toward rapid technological advancement. In her work, the 3D printed output is layered within analog processes, such as mold-making and lost wax casting, serving as a sobering lens through which to further scrutinize cutting-edge desirability. While the everyday cacophony of commercialized images and language can prove to be experientially estranging, her work offers the viewer a more intimate and critical perspective of a familiar object.
Ms. Carney has previously shown work at Sideshow Gallery, Stairway Gallery and Women Made in Chicago.
