Carmen Lang grew up in Mexico City. She has a BFA from La Esmeralda where she also was a professor of Ceramics and Drawing. She has an MFA from California College of the Arts, where she was awarded the George B Saxe scholarship.
A common theme in Lang’s work is disconnection. Limbs are entwined to create familiar yet abstract masses of body parts. The outcome is both recognizable and uncanny.
Carmen has done artistic residencies at the Banff Centre for the Arts and Uriatre Talavera with grants from FONCA Mexico. She has been a guest artist at San Francisco State University and, Sierra College and University of Manitoba.
