Carol Bove’s work uses sculpture, paintings, and prints to bring together found and made elements in an unexpected, poetic, and affective bond. Her sculptures assemble a variety of materials, ranging from tubular steel to peacock feathers, merging modernist forms with unusual textures. The culture and the tradition of her hometown in California, Berkley, shape her practice and inspire Bove to realize artifacts that attempt to connect the natural to the artificial. Her works appeared in The Kitchen group exhibition JUST KICK IT TILL IT BREAKS in 2007.
