Carole Loeffler

“Linger – a multi-media environment,” installation

The title of the exhibition, “Linger,” is exactly what the artist would like the viewer to do. Loeffler, an artist currently teaching and living in Southern Illinois, is interested in the idea of temporarily transforming the psychological and physiological characteristics of an architectural space. “Linger” is based on the artist’s idea to create an environment of wonder, astonishment and awe. She challenges the viewers to slow down and immerse themselves in an environment that puts one at ease, that is warm and enveloping – much like a womb.
