Mass Cultural Council and the New Art Center (NAC) will present the 2016 Mass Cultural Council Artist Fellows in Painting, Choreography, Drawing & Printmaking, and Traditional Arts on September 16-October 15, 2016, at the NAC.
Kim Carlino, one of the exhibiting artists, shares how her intuitive paintings and drawings bring disparate elements together.
I think of myself as an interventionist, mining the space between painting and drawing and being and becoming. I explore the evolutionary nature of mark making and relationships between color, geometry, line and form. Through a pseudo scientific lens of inquiry and exploration I set up a situation on a paper like surface using the language of painting to improvise from. This is an arena in which pattern and form engage and accentuate the contradictions, opposites and contrasts that exist in this fabricated world.
My work playfully employs shifts of scale, opticality, illusion and disillusion of space and a nonlinear construction of time in hopes of finding equanimity in disparate elements.
