“Made-up characters will always be present in my work, but I’m realizing now that painting my friends is important and means more to me.” - Drake Carr
These sculptures are far from a work of fiction. They represent the warped memories of Carr’s life (moving from the midwest to NYC) as well as current political issues (such as a the Flint water crisis).
The back room of The Hole is always a treasure chest of funky art... and Drake's exhibition was no exception.
This was the perfect exhibition for me to have a little fun with my tripod and bluetooth camera remote (below).
