Rebecca Carter uses thread in an assortment of ways to create her work. The use of delicate thread is seen in her bodies of work and is crafted to create a statement some more direct than others. Sometimes combining the thread with other media to further the concept, her work brings out feelings of sincerity, memory, and identity. Carter’s thread drawing, video installation and photo based projects have been exhibited at the Dallas Museum of Art, the Nasher Sculpture Center, The Dallas Contemporary, Dallas Omni Hotel, RE Gallery, Road Agent Gallery, The Reading Room, 500x, Korea’s Cheongju International Craft Biennial, The New York Center for Book Arts, and Arts Religare in India.
