Carol Wax. Type Face, 2002. Mezzotint. Edition of 75. 9-1/4 x 9-1/4 inches.
ARTIFICIAL SOULS: Mezzotint Engravings by Carol Wax opens Thursday July 29 at Locust Grove, The Samuel Morse Historic Site, Poughkeepsie, NY.
Wax’s visual interpretations of old typewriters, sewing machines, electric fans, telephones, vintage fabrics and other commonplace objects reflect her experience of the ordinary as extraordinary. Working in a realistic style, she portrays these objects as icons. Inspired by 17th Century Dutch still-life imagery that symbolized the impermanence of beauty, her icons represent the transient nature of industrial ingenuity. Through her art, Wax contemplates how our perceptions of technology evolve from state-of-the-art to artifact to art.
