Summer Woods

Summer Woods       36x24"          thrown and splattered paint on canvas             2015

" Carey is working in a conceptual space beyond realism, where paint and gesture cannot possibly, theoretically, replicate every variation nature can. It is the gap between the idea of her application of splatter to nature and the endless possibilities of nature that gives to Carey’s work the friction that keeps it sharp and purposeful, her strokes directed, tense, meaningful. It is a kind of impressionism, but educated by a new generation’s fuller appreciation of fractal complexity in branching and all the chaos of natural form." Robert Mahoney NY art critic
