WIP Artist Highlight: alyssa denay carter

alyssa was selected as the Work In Progress resident for the month of July. While unfortunately we weren't able to meet her in the studio, we were excited to host a virtual open studio where alyssa guided us through her work and practice. Watch our interview below, which was recorded on Instagram Live on July 22, 2020.

alyssa denay carter (she/her/hers) is an artist and birth worker. Her care work and creative practice are interrelated in their interrogation of life cycles and uphold modes of self-preservation and interdependency. alyssa’s work examines embodiment and performance of intersecting identities using weaving, fiber arts & integrated printmaking techniques. She weaves skins to be worn, exploring the concept of bodies rooted in spaces and places rooted in bodies—inherited cultural memory—joy, resilience, means of self-preservation, ancestral strength and knowledge. She is in conversation with her own, and others’, identity and the natural and human-made world around her.
