Contemporary Art by Southern Artists

Joan Carew

Georgia Contemporary Figurative Clay Sculpture

My current work is about people as interpreted through my figures.  It began when my grandchildren started spouting words of wisdom, too clever to be forgotten.  So the pieces are a narrative of sorts, humorous, deep, inane and cherished.  I love to introduce found pieces of junk and nature into the finished piece.  They take on a new perspective when joined with the clay, speaking about what they could have been. Birds are an important imagery to me.  They represent the freedom I have within me, my creative soul. They are usually on my shoulders speaking to me in soft voices, urging me on.  When people see my work I would like for them to feel the lightness of my spirit, the peace that comes from within me and the joy I have in living.
