Carol Young at C. Grimaldis Gallery

October 06, 2016

We are pleased to announce Carol Young's most recent exhibition, "Scrolls and Sheets," at C. Grimaldis Gallery in Baltimore, Maryland. 

Baltimore, MD - C. Grimaldis Gallery is pleased to present Scrolls and Sheets, a solo exhibition of ceramic works by Carol Young. Young’s intricate sculptures are meticulously crafted to resemble curled, folded and piled sheets of parchment. The artist’s trompe-l’oeil replication of the lightness, weight, and fragility of paper confounds the viewer’s perception of material. Young’s blank pages become a kind of tabula rasa upon which the contents of personal and collective archives might appear. These delicate, evocative works investigate subliminal memory, forgotten history, and that which has not yet been spoken or said. Young’s installations call to mind an ancient printed library laden with hidden information yearning to be classi ed, renewed and studied.

Carol Young (b. Uruguay, 1952), has been living and working in Colombia since the 1980s. Young has received numerous honors and awards for her sculpture and has exhibited at galleries and museums internationally including The Museum of Modern Art, Colombia; Bonnefanten Museum, Maastricht; Bard Graduate Center Gallery, New York; Museo Conde Duque, Spain; and Caracas Museum of Contemporary Art, Venezuela.

The exhibition will be on view from September 15 - October 22, 2016, and will run concurrently with a presentation by photographer Rania Matar, Invisible Children. An opening reception will take place on Thursday, September 15 from 6-8pm.

C. Grimaldis Gallery has continuously operated in Baltimore since 1977. It has established itself as Baltimore’s oldest contemporary art gallery, and an important venue in the region. The gallery specializes in postwar American and European art with an emphasis on contemporary sculpture.
