Collection: Amelia Carley

Amelia Carley’s work engages with the interpretation of memories within a landscape and fictitious sites. Using found materials, she creates small models that are photographed and then painted to construct a bizarre world. Starting as an investigation of memories, her work has evolved into a contemplation of the future. Born and raised in Colorado, Carley received a BFA from the University of Colorado at Boulder and an MFA from the Ernest G. Welch School of Art and Design at Georgia State University. She has participated in several artist-in-resident programs, including Vermont Studio Center and Atlantic Center for the Arts. Carley has exhibited at such venues as SOMArts (San Francisco, CA), Utah Museum of Contemporary Art (Salt Lake City, UT), Hathaway Gallery (Atlanta, GA), Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art (Boulder, CO), Hyperlink Gallery (Chicago, IL), Day & Night Projects (Atlanta, GA), Galleries of Contemporary Art at University of Colorado (Colorado Springs, CO), Photographic Arts Center (Denver, CO),  Aqua Art Fair (Miami, FL), Camayhus Gallery (Atlanta, GA), Pratt Institute (Brooklyn, NY), and Paradice Palase (Brooklyn, NY). Amelia Carley currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
