But examine her method of colouring these shreds of thin paper and the themes become more complex. Carey stains the paper with a variety of liquids – tea, coffee, even blood – and by doing so pulls the work into an intimate and unsettling sphere. The domestic inference of the tea and coffee seems to evoke death’s presence in daily life, and to play out the artist’s stated aim to explore “how we choose to deal, both publicly and privately, with the death of a loved one.”
