Carole d’Inverno: The Things They Carry

at Main Window

The Things They Carry is a site-specific installation for Main Window. Artist Carole d’Inverno, an immigrant herself, pays tribute to the many people who have journeyed to this area for over 15,000 years. Each person, of various cultures and backgrounds, carries with them physical possessions, precious memories, and life stories. The painting reflects d’Inverno’s initial impressions of the city, while the bundles symbolize the possessions – both physical and emotional – that immigrants must choose from before beginning their journey. For d’Inverno, the installation brings back memories of her arrival, while emphasizing the enduring history of human existence in this area.

d’Inverno is a research-based abstract painter focused on American history. Immigration, and the human impact on the land comprise the bulk of her research. d’Inverno’s paintings and drawings range from small to mural-sized works on paper and canvas using ink, watercolors, pencils, and vinyl emulsions. Each work is based on facts deliberately altered by abstraction. The shapes and vivid color combinations create a dream-like topography that draws the viewer in to experience history at an emotional level and make it their own.

Carole d’Inverno was born in Spa, Belgium. Notable solo exhibitions include the Duluth Art Institute, Duluth, MN; Atlantic Gallery, New York, NY; The Massillon Museum, Massillon, OH; The Western Carolina University, Cullowhee, NC; PENN State University, Altoona, PA; and the State University of New York, Rochester, NY. d’Inverno has participated in exhibitions at the Maitland Art and History Museums, Maitland, FL; North Seattle College Art Gallery, Seattle, WA; NARS Foundation, Brooklyn, NY; Schweinfurth Art Center, Auburn, NY; Notre Dame of Maryland University, Baltimore, MD; and the Ronald Barr Gallery, Indiana University Southeast, New Albany, IN, amongst others.

d’Inverno lives and works in New York.
