Carrie Dickason’s experimental work is influenced by observations of nature, combined with interests in the constructed environment and consumer society. She develops patterns and systems using familiar materials ranging from spray paint, tape and plastic packaging, to automotive leather and foam. This palette develops from her daily life and experiences in jobs such as hand-woven carpet preservation and automotive interior work.
Dickason has an MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art and BFA from Indiana University, Bloomington. Some residencies include the Corporation of Yaddo; Vermont Studio Center; and Taliesin West, the Frank Lloyd School of Architecture. Her work has been exhibited in New York, Denver, Columbus, Toronto, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Detroit, among others.
After SFAI 2010, she moved to Hamtramck, MI to work on luxury automotive interiors. She was a staff-artist at the Vermont Studio Center 2015-2016, and will begin the year-long Tulsa Artist Fellowship program, in Tulsa, OK, in 2017.
