Artist: Carrie Leigh Dickey
About the Artwork: From the body of work entitled “cur•rent [ kur-uhnt ] flow marked by force or strength.” With this work, I am exploring the currents that shaped the cityscape of Winston-Salem, as well as, the currents that flow today within the city. Specifically, I selected iconic traffic patterns from the city. Paint colors and textures were informed not only by the locations but also by the planes formed from the division of space. Location is Salem Parkway and I-40 interchange.
