About the Artist
Carla Cubit’s creates small mixed media assemblage pieces using found objects and materials–often discarded hardware and recycled objects. Recently her works have been inspired by the Occupy Wall Street and Black Lives Matter movements. Cubit finds that there is no separation between her daily life and her creative outpouring: “I love the arts in whatever medium it may be; music, theater, dance etc; and I believe in religion, mysticism and the secret meaning of the unknown and art as a universal means of communication.”
