Carolyn Hopkins
I cut and paste things, transplant one thing into another, impose and juxtapose. I sew things up and stretch them over each other. My work pulls the wild and unfamiliar into the domestic realm. Through combining items, materials, and imagery from culturally oppositional territories a new hybrid space emerges which allows for a reconsideration of the familiar.

This work questions the conventional cultural roles of the feminine and masculine as well as the tamed and untamed and creates moments from which to look back at the world we navigate. Through creating work that maneuvers within an existing terrain I erect outposts from which others may re-investigate a formerly recognizable territory.
