C.W. Carson is an urbane artist (painter, digital artist, installation artist). He completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Alberta, and received an M.F.A. in painting from the University of British Columbia. An artist with a trap line, Carson collects images and stories rather than collecting bottles and cans. The collected content is used, reused, and abused in the artmaking process. His art reflects his multifaceted life as a gay male Canadian.
The Art Gallery of Alberta respectfully acknowledges that we are located in Treaty 6 Territory and Region 4 of the Metis Nation of Alberta. We respect this as the traditional and contemporary land of diverse Indigenous Peoples including the Plains Cree, Woodland Cree, Beaver Cree, Nitsitapi/Blackfoot, Métis, Nakota Sioux, Anishinaabe/Saulteaux/Ojibwe and Dene Peoples. We also acknowledge the many Indigenous, Inuit and Métis people who make Alberta their home today.
