Kyle Karrasch said, “I like to describe my art practice like that of a naturalist and a taxidermist. I collect discarded specimens from their resting place and carve into their carcasses, flaying their skins out into recognizable forms.” In his Waste Aeon exhibition for CCAI, Karrasch brought his sculptures made of trash into the gallery.
The free exhibit is open to the public September 19 — December 20, 2022, Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., in the Western Nevada College’s Bristlecone Gallery, 2201 West College Parkway, Carson City. Join CCAI for the opening reception, Friday, September 30, 5:00 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.
Karrasch said, “To be alive means to consume and we only stop consuming once we cease to exist. What impact does our consumption have on the world? We buy many things, and the vast majority of those things have a fleeting use. They are designed that way so that we will continue to buy more. Buy, use, toss, and repeat. It is a cyclical process.
