Artist Statement

I live on the world’s largest light table, aka Lubbock, TX or The Flatlands.  It is an additive color landscape – more light than land, more horizon than pavement, more sky than earth.  My paintbrush is the sun; my subject is energy.  Bicycles, tumbleweeds and early American feminist history are my favorite subjects and reflect the geography I live in both physically and spiritually.


Carol Flueckiger is a mixed media artist who makes work about feminist history, weather and geography.  Her signature technique builds on cyanotype, a light sensitive chemical that she blends with paint, dye and tea through submersion, sanding and coating.  She has secured funding to study primary documents from Women’s Rights National Historical Park, American Antiquarian Society, Library of Congress and Eleanor Roosevelt Paper Project.  She has recently been awarded the Texas Tech University Integrated Scholar Award for projects that merge art practices and historical sources.  Currently her work is represented by Charles Adams Gallery in Lubbock, TX. She is an Associate Professor of Art at Texas Tech University and lives in Lubbock with her husband and son.
