“The last couple of decades have been exceptionally productive ones for Rush. She has examined the peculiarities of twinship in a series of photos that take on family memories, pop culture (Barbie and Willie dolls), and masterworks of art history. She has worked with casting different body parts, made photos inspired by a bout with breast cancer, and contributed installations commemorating the fortieth anniversary of Ntozake Shange’s choreogram “for colored girls who have considered suicide when the rainbow is enuf.”

The imagery produced by Carol Crawford reflects people throughout history seeking asylum in a strange new land, often combining pieces of places around the world that have seen destruction and migration of people. The large collage simulates the waves of immigrants walking together to find a new home. The backdrop, an image captured in Staten Island after Hurricane Sandy, is a cloudy sky punctuated by light, creates a sense that they are descending from the heavens in their most vulnerable time.
