Terry Karson (American)
Lives and works in Bozeman, MT
Terry Karson works with recycled materials such as cardboard, plastic packaging, bottle tops and other commercial packaging, transforming garbage into art. It’s kind of like alchemy, Karson says, referring to the pseudoscience that transforms matter. I take stuff that is thrown away and turn it into art. Karson has also created watercolor paintings on paper that mimic some assemblages.
Terry Karson’s work appears in many public and corporate collections. His museum shows include exhibitions at the Yellowstone Art Museum in Billings, MT, the Holter Museum of Art in Helena, MT, the Paris Gibson Square Museum of Art in Great Falls, MT, and the Walton Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, AR.
