About the artist:
I work primarily in oils, and work on heavy duck canvas secured to handmade 2-inch deep poplar stretcher frames. I paint abstractions about my reactions to the world, to others, to ideas, and to my own history.
The elements I work with are color and composition, and I do not strive to capture objective reality on canvas. I have studied photography, design, and drawing. I am a self-taught painter.
While living in Seattle, I showed my work in solo shows and group exhibitions at a range of galleries and spaces from 2001 to 2009, including: Forgotten Works, Artists Gallery, Art/Not Terminal Gallery, Arts West, Gallery 6311, Queen Hotel Studios, Patricia Cameron Gallery, and the PONCHO/Seattle Fine Art Auction.
I was represented by Oasis Art Gallery in Seattle from 2006 through 2009, and am now represented through Another Moon Studios in Elkins Park, Pennsylvania.
Summer of 2016, I began showing in Philadelphia, and have recently been included two group shows at DaVinci Art Alliance and one group show at The Plastic Club. A solo show followed, featuring new work, at Jed Williams Gallery in February 2017, and my work was included in a group show at the Delaware Center for Contemporary Art over the summer of 2017. My next solo show will be at DaVinci Art Alliance in Philadelphia, November 2018.
Solid Universe Theory, Martha Hope Carey
Hosted at DVAA, November 7th - 28th
Painter Martha Hope Carey will exhibit new work for her first solo show at DVAA exploring 'solid universe theory,' an idea (and a timely metaphor) from a story by writer Cixin Liu, about beings living in what they assume is a small space within a solid universe slowly learning that their view of reality is entirely wrong.
