Sculpture and Ceramics by
Carolyn Mimbs

My current body of work is inspired by my past and is visually centered around my time visiting my family's cabin on a small island in rural Ontario. Seeing the island through the lens of a child, adolescent, and now as an adult has brought me to examine the idea of nostalgia. This cabin has become a repository of family history, an ever-growing arrangement of family artifacts that have cluttered this utopian escape.

The familial clutter encapsulated on this small, remote island inspires me to create drawings, paintings, ceramic vessels and sculptures that incorporate images of these aged mementos and the surrounding terrain into the design of the work with conceptual dichotomies of past and future, comfort and tension, and purity and experience.

I have recently incorporated the figure into my work as a way to push against the expectations and assumptions of my past and my family. The figure is often reaching and striving for growth and enlightenment.
