Now for some art! Here is the next in our series of Angle on Artists and we are featuring the Soft Sculptures of Carlie Trosclair who is an installation artist based in St. Louis, Missouri. Trosclair earned an MFA from the Sam Fox School of Design and Visual Arts at Washington University in St. Louis, a BFA from Loyola University New Orleans, and is a Fellow of the Community Arts Training Institute (MO).
Approached through a lens of reordering and rediscovery, Trosclair’s site sensitive installations create new topographies and narratives that highlight structural and decorative shifts that evolve over a building’s lifespan.
I’m a particular fan of her Soft Sculptures as they are reminiscent of the draping on a designer’s mannequin. Take a look at her impressive body of work on her site, www.carlietrosclair.com
