A lot of my work has a mathematical base at the core. I’ve always enjoyed playing with concepts of geometry, fractals, and the Golden Ratio. I keep those concepts in the back of my mind so I can utilize them just enough to still break the rules. After all, this is my world.

Featured: “Intimacy Of The Infinites (Intimafancy)” is a personal reflection upon the intimacy of relationships and the eternal life they imbue. Through a limited and symbolic color palette, coupled with abstract imagery conceptually based on Michelangelo’s iconic image of the hand of God giving life to Adam in the Sistine Chapel, the artist’s hand breathes life into this colorful creation as the “Figura Serpentinata” (representing the creation of the aforementioned figures in both masculine and feminine forms at the point of touch) draws you into the glowing luminosity of the center, only to be pulled back out as the cycle lives on and repeats in a pattern everlasting-

“The Up-Side of Down” was inspired by a 2009 assault and battery that hospitalized me with multiple facial fractures, severe eye trauma, and a concussion. My signature icon, which I saw flashing in my head during my concussive state, is a key repeating element in this series that represents life growing from death and discovering the positives in negatives.

Featured: Trapped In This Space Between Here And There. Acrylic and aerosol on panel. 36in x 24in. I’ve often felt as if I am of other places and times. Perhaps that pull is what prevents me from ever truly feeling as if I have a place in the here and now of the present. If you are everywhere, you are here. But if you are here, you are not everywhere. I’m “Trapped In This Space Between Here And There” 🙂

Michael Carini | Beneath The Wings Of Free Swan (Deanne’s Song)

“Beneath The Wings Of Free Swan (Deanne’s Song)” took me almost three years to get to because I didn’t want to address it or acknowledge it, but I finally did. This is the tribute painting for Deanne Hastings, who disappeared in Washington almost 3 years ago. She always used to call me Wings and is the reason I have them on my back. Now I’m under hers and this tribute is her swan song as she is finally free of this cage and hopefully at peace.
