Everything Dies Alone

Thematically, this is one of my darkest paintings. In my opinion, it’s also one of my most beautiful and valuable. It takes a deep introspective look into death and isolation…with a little homage to Donnie Darko.

Holding On To Letting Go

Sometimes we hold on to the things it is necessary to let go of and others we let go of the things it is necessary to hold on to for our personal growth. Learn the difference, hold on, and let go. This past year there were a lot of times I wanted to give up but I had to hold on to my dream, whatever it took, and learn to let go of my self-doubt. It’s a daily battle I have to fight.

We often struggle in life with stopping a behavior or pattern that inhibits us or moving forward and ending something we need to end to move on to something new because it is intimidating and we just don’t know what may happen. But…we just don’t know what may happen. Sometimes it is necessary to “Say Hello To Goodbye.”

“A Nest For The White Raven”

White ravens are often bullied and pushed out of the nest by the “normal” ravens. I found this story very relatable. We all need a safe place to just be ourselves. We all need a safe place to build our nest and call home.

Michael Carini | More Than Most

Have you ever felt like you’re a little bit “extra” or maybe more than others? It could be anything, positive or negative. Maybe you’re more of a giver. Maybe you always work a little bit harder. Maybe you just always seem to have more thrown at you. Maybe you feel like you’re always more on the edge or stand out because you’re more noticeably different than those that surround you. I just want to tell you…It’s okay to be “More Than Most.”

People make a lot of promises about “forever” but that “forever” doesn’t often seem to last very long. When I say “forever”, I want it to mean “Foreverandever.” This painting depicts a scenic gardenesque fantasyland filled with floral delights, plenty of safe places to rest head, and the warm light of the setting sun peering in from above to touch your shoulder and let you know everything is going to be alright. This is the world of your dreams and everything you deserve… “Foreverandever.”

“King Nothing And The Discovery Of The Lost Venus (For SAMO)” is a love story and homage to Basquiat and the many historical paintings of Venus that preceded it as well as the many that will come after it. Can you spot the crown? I was recently asked to describe my work, to which I responded…“Imagine the love child of van Gogh and Basquiat.”

“The Alchemist’s Rose” was the very first from the flower collection and closely resembles the iconic flower from “Beauty and Beast” placed against a backdrop that mirrors the color of Belle’s dress. Beast has been an often relatable character in many ways and forms and I’ve always been fascinated with the powerful symbolism and beauty of flowers. I’ve always loved the story of the flower that grows from the darkest and most desolate cracks. I’m also at a critical and introspective stage of life where I’m learning to stop and admire the beauty of the flowers that surround me, some more hidden and obscure than others. There is one flower I still seek though, and that ever-elusive flower, “The Alchemist’s Rose” as I call her, is the one that will stop these petals from wilting, if only for a moment, before my time expires. 

May you rise and bloom like the most beautiful rose-

I painted “Forever Free Falling” at KAABOO Del Mar in 2017 during one of Tom Petty’s final performances. This is my tribute to the man, the legend, and now the angel. I’ll be back at KAABOO Del Mar this September with a few surprises up my sleeve.

“I Gave You Every Piece Of Me But You Could Never Love A Puzzle (95,126,814,720 Pieces Of An Alchemist)” reflects upon battles with both self-love and the realization I often give the love I always wish I had. It’s often difficult for people to love a puzzle they can’t put together. The box can be intriguing, maybe they even open it, but so few are willing to take the time to see it through to the final piece. The number of puzzle pieces is also a direct reference to my mega creation Regenaissance. Perhaps the reason the puzzle is so difficult to complete is that so many pieces are missing because they were given away to people that mishandled them and never put them back in the box.
