Carlton Scott Sturgill was born in 1971 in Cincinnati, Ohio, and received a BFA from the University of Cincinnati and an MA from Chelsea Collage of Art in Design in London. Although he now lives in New Orleans, Louisiana, his work continues to be shaped by his Midwestern roots. Inspired by the bedroom communities of Mid-America, his work examines the conflict between our need to push individual sexual boundaries and our desire to appear as ambassadors of a white-picket-fence America. Sturgill’s work has been exhibited in galleries and museums in North America and Europe, including the Cornell Museum of Art in Delray Beach, Florida, Temple Bar Gallery in Dublin, Ireland, and the Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art in New York City.
