A very limited number of copies of her sold out book "Anonymous Women" will be available for purchase at the opening reception.

About the Artist

Patty Carroll is a fine art photographer based in Chicago, Illinois who has been known for her use of highly intense, saturated color photographs since the 1970’s. Her most recent project, “Anonymous Women,” consists of a 3-part series of studio installations made for the camera, addressing women and their complicated relationships with domesticity. By camouflaging the figure in drapery and/or domestic objects, Carroll creates a dark yet humorous game of hide-and-seek between her viewers and the Anonymous Woman. The exhibition at Catherine Couturier Gallery will feature large scale images from her latest narrative, “Demise,” where the  woman becomes the victim of dramatic domestic disasters. Her activities, obsessions and objects overwhelm and consume her making space that surrounds her a site of unexpected tragedy. The scenes of her tragic end are loosely inspired by several sources including the game of Clue, where murder occurs in one of five rooms of the house: Dining Room, Kitchen, Hall, Conservatory, and Library.

The exhibition will be on display through February 16th, 2019

In the meantime, please enjoy selections of pieces which will be on display.
