Carrie has recently returned from her self-titled “Radical Mexican Mosaic Mission” courtesy of the Winston Churchill Fellowship where she won the award to “further the art and craft of community mosaics in the UK.”

Inspired by the vibrant activism, ideology and warmth of the people she met Carrie has produced a brand new body of work for her show at ink_d gallery that portrays the struggles and people of the real Mexico.

Mexico houses some of the most immense mosaics in the world and has one of the strongest mosaic traditions. Their iconography is steeped in Mayan and Aztec influences, which combines everything Carrie loves; skulls, tripped out patterns, religious symbolism, mysticism and brilliant striking graphics.
