Whether it involves a visit to another country or her own back yard, Maggie Carberry’s work begins with a camera and a journey. A native of Pelham, New York, Carberry moved to Boston by way of Washington DC, London, and Brasilia. Time spent abroad has influenced her work to include themes of travel, movement, and daydreaming. She is fascinated by the way printmaking processes can be used to transform a photograph. Additional layers of media help to turn her images into work that reflects a passing of time.
In 2010, Carberry began focusing on her “Daydream Dwellings” series. She believes that repetition in architecture can be used to facilitate daydreaming much like a mandala is used to facilitate meditation. Although meditation is a deliberate act, while daydreaming tends to be accidental, both allow you to take a break from the noise of the world in order to clear your mind and ultimately refocus. Carberry hopes that her “re-imagined urban landscapes” give the viewer a personal portal to their most peaceful daydreams.

“I often consider that my interest in sculpture and installation comes from playing with dollhouses when I was younger. It wasn’t the dolls that interested me, it was the arranging and rearranging the spaces until I was momentarily satisfied, helping me to make sense of the world and arrange ideas physically and in my thoughts. My need to arrange and rearrange my art until it is “just right”, relates to my need to fix, heal, or understand.”
