" Carey's method of throwing paint onto the canvas is nearly a performance activity - an action whose
consequences are felt in the application of paint on canvas. The artist paints with unabashed
freedom, nuancing the complicated relations between skeins of color, both freely and tightly applied. Carey has successfully conflated different periods and geographies in her art, arriving at a language
that nonetheless speaks of her sensibility alone. The paint most often built up into a heavy impasto,
affects the viewer as a subject in its own right, being just as important as the particular view or scene
Carey is offering." Robert Mahoney NY art critic
