About the Artist

Carla Aspenberg was born and raised in New York City, and has lived and worked in Lawrence, Kansas for over a decade. She earned a BA in Studio Art from Bard College, and an MFA in Sculpture from Brooklyn College of the City University of New York. She has studied under Judy Pfaff, Elizabeth Murray, and Vito Acconci. Her work has been exhibited in venues such as the International Print Center New York, Brooklyn Public Library, Lawrence Public Library, Site:Brooklyn Gallery, Rush Arts Gallery in New York, Corridor Gallery in Brooklyn, Foundry Art Centre in Missouri, and Colorado State University. She has completed artist residencies at the Lawrence Arts Center, Pilchuck Glass School in Washington, Wilson College in Pennsylvania, and the Vermont Studio Center. She has taught as an adjunct at Metropolitan Community College in Kansas City.

Carla creates drawings, sculptures, and prints, using both accessible and challenging materials and processes. She typically works with found materials, and her process is influenced by a movement called Arte Povera, where everyday materials are used to create works of fine art. She explores subject matter such as patterns from nature, light, sublime states, abstract landscapes, the physical body, and celestial bodies.

Growing up in New York, Carla found solace from the busy streets by frequenting museums and galleries. She appreciated the quiet and calm these spaces offered and dreamed of having her own art studio, which would be a meditative, peaceful place. She loved making art at an early age in school and knew that art would always be a part of her life. In college, she was able to major in art, turning it into a lifelong practice.
