Autumn I, 5x7'  thrown acrylic house paint on canvas 2010
featured in the front window of the LGOCA

Both of these paintings mean a great deal to me. They were created while I was staying with my mother in the 'country' of Ventura. She was terminally ill and I was carrying for her. I did not have a studio there, so these pieces, which captured the wild nature of my physical and emotional surroundings so beautifully, were thrown outside. They had to remain on the ground for days at a time, while I built up the paint, during that time, birds, dogs, squirrels, and the occasional peacock would run or peck their ways across. Imprinted in the paintings are remnants of these visits.
Thank you LGOCA for featuring them so prominently.

"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."  NY art critic, Robert Mahoney

Paintings in Public Settings

 The environment frequently determines the visual impact on the viewer. Where something is seen often determines the value and viability of art. Location, location, location.

Paintings in their Home Settings

I have always believed that the viewer is an integral part of the painting process. The environment also inserts itself on the paintings visual effect.  Though the painting remains the same, each visual effect is as individual as it's owners. Below are a few paintings in their home settings.
