Our second invited artist, Priscilla Carrion currently lives and works in Providence, RI. She earned a BFA in textiles from RISD (2007) and she now pursues her practice as part of a collective textile studio space in Olneyville.
About her work, Carrion says; "I am influenced by my history and background, having been raised in Providence as first generation Ecuadorian American. Growing up with a foot in each culture and traveling has increased my awareness of the impact that economic and political changes can have on our personal lives, societies, art and cultural trends."
Much of her recent work has taken the form of quilts and for this edition, Priscilla has stayed true to that strategy of image-construction but now it is translated through the medium of screenprint.
