Formerly a computer network engineer, Carolyn Lee Vehslage is now a full time fiber artist. Her current artwork is about technology’s impact on our lives. With titles such as “Fried Circuits” and “Motherboard Meltdown”, the computer series has struck a responsive chord with viewers. While they seem light-hearted and colorful at first glance, they bring out feelings of how microchips have infiltrated and complicated our daily routines. All these automated gadgets were supposed to make our lives simpler; but the benefits come hand-in-hand with new sources of stress.
Her artwork is in the permanent collections of Museo de Collage in Morelos, Mexico, Musée ArtColle in Sergines, France, San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles in San Jose, California, the ARA Gallery in Miami, Florida, and the Kelekian Art Gallery in Beirut, Lebanon.
