Welcome to The Art of Chandra!

Who Am I?

My name is Chandra Carr, and I am a sculpture artist. Sculpting is my passion and sculpting in clay is my super passion. I am starting out on my journey to explore the beauty in emotions! I want to tackle the unwanted emotions in society such as, shame, depression, death, pain, loss, regret, etc... Seeing, first hand, the overwhelming number of people struggling with mental health issues is the drive behind this endeavor. Mental health has been such a taboo in the modern world that I feel it is time for it to be brought into the public view so that it can no longer be brushed aside. Mental health care is a grossly under-developed, under-funded, revolving system in America and yet society continues to stress the average person to the point of needing mental health care at some point in their lives. I wish to address this growing concern in my art work. 

What Am I Working On?
My current series of work is a set of Skull-ptures. Each skull is depicted as anatomical with paintings of flowers and spiraling patterns and dots. Sculpted flowers will be surrounding each skull in various ways. Each skull will be different. Each skull has a name and a story. Each story will be taking on a different mental health subject. The idea behind the stories is to show that, despite the things that these people struggled with in life, they were each loved and remembered. The flowers and painted patterns represent the love that the living still hold for the deceased. The fact that these people are no longer living represents the issue of mental health being ignored by society. The realism of the figures and flowers represents that this is a real problem and not a watered down version of reality.   
Each Skull Story will be released as I compete the skulls and present you the final skull-pture. 

Why Am I Asking For Money?

Sculpting isn't cheap. For me to keep creating, I need money for supplies and money to eat and live. With Patreon you can help support my creation of fine art without investing huge sums of money. With your financial support, I can keep creating and pushing myself to break new barriers in sculpture as well as doing things like eating, and keeping the lights on. 

What Do You Get Out Of This?

As a supporter you can have access to the part of art most people don't get to see.
-Get good Karma by supporting the expression of art and bringing some beauty to the Universe!
-Get images of what I'm working on!
-Watch time-lapse videos of art being created!
-Get behind the scenes videos of the craziness that goes into the making of sculptures! 
-Get photo cards with the Skull Stories mailed to you!
-Get exclusive sketches from my sketchbook!
-Get mini-sculptures of your very own!


Join me in the struggles and accomplishments as I explore the concepts of a struggling mental health epidemic.

What Are My Plans?

-I plan on releasing new content at least 4 times a month, hopefully more often as I get more support.
-I plan on completing 13-24 skull-ptures for my current series. (9 are awaiting painting.)
-I also plan on expanding my studio to include a gas kiln (I have an electric and a Raku).
-I plan on having a pit fire built.
-I plan on getting into a gallery by the end of August 2017. 
-I plan on making at least one new series (also dealing in mental health) by the end of 2017

Goals
$46 of $250 per month
My Watercolors used for painting my skull-ptures, is in need of replacing. Remember when I said art supplies aren't cheap? One set of professional french watercolors is $200-$300!!! YIKES! The set I'm drooling over is made by Sennelier and contains 48 colors. Time to start putting pennies in the jar.
