Caroline Frost is a student pursuing her BA in Art History at Texas State University, where she also works in the TXST Galleries. She is a Texas native and enjoys reading, hanging out with her cats, and spending time outdoors. She is interested in artwork that references the art historical canon but also aims to expand it, both conceptually and stylistically, by emphasizing culturally-relevant matters and by challenging viewers to think about the social, political, and geographic world around them. Specifically, she is interested in the departure from the analog into the digital as we embark on the Post-postmodern era, and how this affects (for better and for worse) the human condition’s ability to communicate and interact with other humans, as well as the physical world.
What she’s looking for: In the submission queue I’m hoping to see artwork that complements the complexity, the realness, and the wit of the written content published on Porter House Review. Additionally, I am looking for artwork that is aesthetically pleasing and pushes boundaries conceptually by reflecting the plurality of the contemporary art world and by taking an investigative standpoint towards this particular point in time that it, and thus the artist, has found itself in existence.
Artists she admires: Richard Hamilton, Yves Klein, Robert Rauschenberg, Nam June Paik, Stan Brakhage, Carolee Schneemann, Pipilotti Rist, Mariko Mori, and Richard Prince
