Carol Quint Bio

I received my B.F.A. from Pratt Institute. I relocated to Los Angeles, and discovered the feminist art world and it’s leaders.

I exhibited at Womanspace and other feminist venues. I returned

To Williamsburg where I was the coordinator of the WAH Salon, the artist membership club of the Williamsburg Art & Historical Center, for 15 years.  Currently, I live in Union City, New Jersey. My sculptures are included in the following art books:

Lexikon-Surreal, International Encyclopedia of Fantastic & Surreal & Symbolic Visionary Artists, Vienna, Austria

I exhibit with a group called Art from Detritus who find inspiration from discards of the 21st century, trash transformed. The use of discarded materials followed my visits to Thrift Shops. I began to see art materials everywhere, even on my dinner plate. Currently, I use chicken bones on my sculptures. The bones are a visceral material that refer to my primal vision. This particular detritus, or leftover, represents an internal truth and mimics an artifact.  My thoughts are about impermanence and mortality. The underlying message alludes to the symbolic links between life and death. The content and function of my work reflects both a sense of time past and time present, qualities that are in the nature of a relic.
