Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world. – Albert Einstein
Carol Prusa creates symbolically charged work responding to liminal locations, using graphite pours and silverpoint drawing in a dance between the known and unknown to create erotically charged portals to new possibilities. Unknowing Between Day and Night articulates emergent forms, offering insight into the mystery of our existence while embracing the magnitude of the universe with the lawlessness of imagination to distill the sacred.
Represented by galleries in the US as well as Taipei, Shanghai, London and Geneva, Carol Prusa exhibits widely in museums and curated exhibitions. Her work has been supported by fellowships including the Howard Foundation and South Florida Cultural Consortium. Museum collections include the Perez Museum of Art, Spencer Museum of Art, Museum of Art Ft. Lauderdale, Hunter Museum of American Art, Telfair Art Museum and Daum Museum of Contemporary Art, among others. Nominated for the 2015 American Academy of Arts Invitational, she received a purchase award placing her work into the collection of the Museum of Arts and Design, NYC. Prusa is represented by Bernice Steinbaum Gallery (Miami) in Florida.
