Flax, Carol

As an artist, I try to find those delimiting spaces where the personal and the social come together, where boundaries shift and nothing is quite certain. As an adoptee, I have spent most of my life caught in the transitional state between knowing and not knowing. For years my work has broached questions of uncertainly in my own identity, extended outward to include larger issues of social and cultural identities. I have used various strategies, sometimes working in the intense private realm, sometimes in the vulnerable and exposed public domain, and various approaches, from my early computer-altered print work in the mid-1980's to more recent web, multimedia and installation work. In each of my projects, questions of memory, both personal and cultural, help to shape my approach.
