Figuratively Speaking

Artist and Assumption College associate professor of art Carrie Nixon was recently profiled in the Spring 2010 edition of Worcester Living. In the article, Nixon discusses her works of art, her recent exhibition at Assumption, and her inspirations. 
An excerpt from the profile appears below:
 
"In her latest series, she also is interested in the effect of color against a black background. 'It creates a mood — just by the fact of it being color — how the red ends up looking somewhat demonic and how the blue is more melancholy or thoughtful.'

Much of the work in her Assumption show centered on her students as well as other artists or musicians absorbed in their work. 'I am an artist and I teach art, so I am surrounded by people making art,” she said. “I’m interested in creativity and also that kind of focus that artists develop as they work.'"
