Carolyn Radlo, whose artistic practice encompasses video, photography, writing, and sculpture, began as a painter. Her work is mostly concerned with metaphysics and the problems of representing the nature and experience of life. The works are meditative, intentionally intellectual and socially conscious.
Carolyn Radlo works often with her daughter, artist and curator Alanna Simone, in a collaborative effort they call C+A Projects. Their projects deal with social and political situations communicated through sparse text and evocative imagery. They like to work with words, images, and meaning without necessarily relying on narrative or linearity. Many of their projects focus on the exchange of ideas between them, the differences and similarities that show up in their work made side by side, but always guided and supported by chance.
