2 Apollo presents symbolic fragments from Carlson’s studio at 2 Apollo Street in Greenpoint, Brooklyn where he lived and worked for three years. The autobiographical installation allows the viewer an intimate involvement with Carlson’s creative process and the origins of his work. His desk and bookshelves are positioned alongside framed drawings, knickknacks, and mementos, rendering an authentic studio environment and revealing the objects from which Carlson draws inspiration. Carlson’s symbol-based idea development is demonstrated by a large hanging collage featuring a sequence of planetary and solar eclipse-influenced imagery. A tie dye tapestry, a tangled gold chain, an old bucket, collected images, and a mobile built from found studio scraps further speak to his organic and personal practice.
