NEST VIII by Diana Carey


California Art News
is dedicated to
promoting the California Art Community.

This issue highlights the work of,
Diana Carey.

The paintings are painted with a gestural technique; throwing, splattering and dripping numerous layers of acrylic house paint onto prone canvas using brushes and sticks. The painting’s subject matter varies from landscape to nests and tangles. The technique is abstract, the style, impressionism.

Many of the works are over eight feet. By virtue of size and technique the viewer is led into the tangled threads and splatters of paint to discover the substance and feel of the subject matter, the essence of the painted, formed amidst the perceived chaos of drips and splashes. A performance art visualized with impasto effect, one whose outcome is immediately recognized as being rendered with intent, without intention rendering technique. There is an element of unpredictability, due to the technique, which allows for the perceived chaos to coalesce into the essence of an image.

”In this body of work, referencing art history, one is astonished to consider the possibility that Carey has wrest the technique of Pollock back to visual purpose of Seurat, using splattered brushwork as Seurat made use of the dot to quest after capturing fully life and nature in a kind of abstract impressionist painting” essay Robert Mahoney, NY art critic.

Carey has exhibited her work extensively, including her solo exhibitions at the Japanese Friendship Garden Museum Row San Diego, 4 Walls Design Gallery, Trios Gallery, Joseph David Gallery, Gallery at the Brooks, Nadine Baurin Fine Art Gallery, Territories Gallery Tucson, and Insight Labs, think tank, for a session with the National Holocaust Museum.
