Reliquary – “a container or shrine in which sacred relics are kept” (Merriam-Webster Dictionary)

 

Kate Carvellas deploys the concept of reliquary to elevate the often discarded and disused objects she incorporates in her assemblage artworks. Doing so, she endows her collected urban detritus with new life and new meanings.

 

Kate Carvellas is an artist who works in assemblage, sculpture and mixed-media abstract paintings. In 2004, Carvellas began creating thematic collages using imagery from various magazines and other mass media sources. A couple of years later, she expanded into three-dimensional assemblage, creating sculptures out of found objects. Later, she started leaving her own marks on the work, eventually segueing into abstract paintings. Most recently she has been combining found objects into her paintings and sculptures. Carvellas has received various awards including Awards of Merit (53rd Annual Bold Expressions Art Exhibit in Carmichael, CA) and Best in Show – 3rd Place (FRESH Exhibit at South Bay Contemporary - 2014), and in 2018 her assemblage, “My Soul Is Not for Sale” was purchased for the Lancaster Museum of Art and History's permanent collection.
