BJ Carrick is an artist, writer, and editor, born in Chicago and currently residing in Lockport, Illinois. Carrick has been represented by Divinemoira Studio since 2011. Carrick is interested in reviving old objects, materials, and styles, then re-blending them to create new forms of expression. The interplay of orange and red is a recurring theme in his visual art, but each work is different in some way; Carrick is unable to use the exact same approach or technique twice. Carrick's work has been presented in several group exhibitions in St. Louis, Missouri and Sarasota, Florida and can be found in several private collections.
