Carol Shinn creates stunningly realistic textile art that evokes in the viewer not only a sense of comfort, but also of deja vu; a sense that she has somehow captured a shared memory. There is an incredible tension and mystery in her work - each piece "reading" as if it is a single page in a book and it is up to us (the viewer) to determine what is going on at this specific time and place, to wonder about what happened on the previous page, and to predict what we would see if only we could turn the page.
