For FLATFILEphotographys MYTHIC exhibit, Carrie Notari created these images as an evocative visualization of the Persephone narrative, a rich and resonant Greek myth about destruction and renewal. In this sequel to her 1989 Persephone series, she montages images to create an otherworldly vision that evokes the narrative cycle of death and regeneration. In this installation of mural scale prints, she explores the myth further as Persephone embraces her role as Queen of the Underworld and emerges to bring spring and renewal to the earth.
In May 1989, Carrie Notari exhibited the PERSEPHONE installation at the RHODE ISLAND SCHOOL OF DESIGN'S Red Eye Gallery in Providence for her Master of Fine Arts thesis. In this initial series, she focused on Persephones abduction into the Underworld/Unconscious realm. For this work she received a 1991 Illinois Arts Council Grant and a 1992 Fulbright award.
