Charles Mary Kubricht

New York, NY, USA


Charles Mary Kubricht works in New York City and Marfa, TX. A central theme of her artwork is morphology, movement and changing viewpoints. She pursues this dynamic in two arenas. On the one hand, she explores the surface of the earth using the analytical methods of archeologists uncovering artifacts in the desert, human wilderness trackers scanning for signs along the southern border, undocumented workers following ancient trails through Far West Texas corridors, and botanists identifying the languages of plant species. On the other hand, she explores the untamed wilderness of outer space using recent astronomical science that focuses on dark energy and matter—the most invisible of phenomena—as well as theories of “multiverse”. We are in the midst of a radical restructuring of the experience of wonder caused by the accelerated destruction of the planet. In response, Kubricht turns to the most distant objects for points of cultural orientation: outer space, exoplanets, alien intelligence. Her distinct visual idiom uses photography, drawing, painting, installation and sculpture to develop productive forms of disorientation, recalculation and uneasy utopias. Her work has been shown in solo exhibitions at The Contemporary Arts Museum (Houston), The Austin Museum of Art, and The Art Museum of South Texas, as well as in numerous museum group exhibitions and solo gallery exhibitions. She was awarded a GSA Art in Architecture Award to design the interior artwork in the new Port of Entry on the US/Mexico border at Columbus, NM. Titled Landscapes Near and Far the artwork used New Mexican fluorite crystal and photography of interacting galaxies. She has received a Creating a Living Legacy Grant from the Joan Mitchell Foundation and DiverseWorks. Among her public art installations are: Alivenesses: Proposal for Adaptation installed on the High Line (NYC) and reviewed in BOMB Magazine (January 4, 2012) and Paramuseum: Environmental Exigencies installed in the Brochstein Pavilion of Rice University (Houston). She has designed stage sets for operas such as Der Protagonist and The Enchanted Tree. Other awards include residencies at Yaddo and Core. Her work has been included in numerous books, magazines, and podcasts.
