Artist Bio

Washington, DC-based artist Skye Carter explores her relationship to her body and the relationship of her body to the world. Her bright, whimsical and glittery mixed media works talk about body dysmorphia, eating disorders, gender, bisexuality, injuries, and chronic pain.

 

In 2015, a serious car accident led to a month of heavy drinking, insomnia, and anorexia. She began researching modern witchcraft, built an altar, and began to meditate daily with a single candle. Her work is influenced by the images from these meditations and asks how and why goddess/goddexes, altars, and temples can be culturally relevant in 2020. 

 

 

Her work tends to center around her own body, and can feature other models as well. She creates costumes, props, and sets that are later digitally manipulated and collaged. Using installation and performance, she fosters a visual experience that allows people to be present with their surroundings, emotions, and bodies. Her primary influences are Western European and Greek mythology, drag performers, fantasy cosplayers, queer sex education, ecosexuality and Christian religious imagery.
