Carla Ciuffo


Carla Ciuffo is a visual artist living in Nashville, Tennessee. Her imagery is an amalgam of narratives, abstracts and lyrical imagery emphasizing the enigma of being human. Quality of light, both natural and constructed, provides luminosity within alternate dimensions that expand the boundaries of her photographic world.

Ciuffo has produced a number of installations including portraiture of iconic and contemporary artists hanging at Nashville's Country Music Hall of Fame, her profile of Girl With a Scar at Tennessee's Custom's House Museum and several large format public works for Nashville's International Airport. 

Presently she is an artist in residence at Harvard University collaborating with the Disease and Biophysics Group, creating abstract artwork using a ground breaking nanofiber technology. Her new series is entitled Nano.Stasis Cosmic Garden and is being developed as a traveling museum exhibit.

Ciuffo's work can be found in collections and corporate installations in New York, Los Angeles, London, Paris and Nashville.
