Ashley Hope Carlislie
Ashley is a professor at the Univerisy of Wyoming. Her sculptures represent who she is and her life experiences. I do now know much about the above image but I believe that the bottom one came from a time when she was in the hospital or had just hurt her back and she was limited to what she could create. The cocoon shapes were how she responded to her injury. I chose these two images (over some of the ones I know more about) because I find them particularly interesting. I love the repetition of line and shape.
One of the aspects of Ashley's work that I would like to inspire my own at some point is the use of textures, colors, and shape to create beautiful movement and a subtle story.
