CORPUS CHRISTI — Carol Flueckiger uses layers of historical text, images and ideas to create her alluring works of art. Similar to sharing our own histories, experiences and knowledge, it is a mystery whether she is constructing or unveiling the stories. Through the intermingling of subtle layers, Flueckiger’s work fluctuates between understated, insinuating and occasionally mysterious.
On view at the Islander Art Gallery through Oct. 31, “Blue Prints” unpacks American history, maps, weather and text. Interlacing these images and ideas both constructs and reveals narratives about geography, nature and history said Joe Peña, director of University Galleries at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi.
