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.

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.”

“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-

“Consumption Of The White Whale (Ahadevale)” references “Moby Dick” in a tale of obsession and total consumption with added historical references to Georgia O’Keeffe. You may spot that hidden treasure with an obsessive canvasing of this whale watching experience. What is your obsession? What is your white whale?

“Light Of The Shadow Caster” reflects upon the dichotomy and duality that existing within all of us. Where there is darkness, there is light. Where there is light, there is darkness. It’s just a matter of perspective and which you allow to dominate you and your life. Don’t like where you are? Change it. You cannot wait for someone to change your life for you because you may be waiting forever. Change your own life. Be your own light. When you learn to do it yourself, nobody can ever take it away from you and if you ever fall back into the darkness, you will know wholeheartedly that you can pull yourself out.

When is the best time to change your life? Yesterday. When is the next best time? Today. Yesterday’s tomorrow has already arrived so tomorrow is no longer a valid excuse.

The “10 Year Table Canvas” spans a decade of visions, creations, and more than 10 bodies of work. Within its depths lie the tangible blood, sweat, and tears of this man beneath the paint. It is a deeply textured and layered history in its purest and most raw form. Encompassing hundreds of paintings that paradoxically unite to create one, it is nothing short of an intimate self portrait of myself, the Acrylic Alchemist.

I think this is one of my most special and valuable pieces. For 10 years, I wiped my palette knife on my table and this is the result. There is a piece of every single painting from over a decade in this one piece, essentially making it a collective portfolio of sorts. The energy is raw and palpable. The textures are insane and represent a three dimensional map of my life. I can still pinpoint certain paintings I was working on at certain times and stages of my life, from the bottom and the top, within this painting. Although I generally don’t allow people to touch my paintings because of the damage caused by oils from the hands, this is a painting I insist that people touch. It will touch you.

“Where Time Falls.” Time is not static and exists in multiple states. It is not bound by clocks or timekeepers. Relativity has shown us all time and time again that a second can feel like eternity and eternity can feel like a second. At times it feels as if it stops and at others we wish it would. It’s difficult to predict where and how time will fall, but it’s absolutely imperative we treasure the time we do have because it’s virtually impossible to retrieve once lost. Yesterday’s tomorrow has arrived and the time is now. Now is always the time. Make the most out of yours and may time forever fall in your favor.

“I Gave You Every Piece Of Me (Until I Was Nothing).” Have you ever felt like you gave every piece of yourself to someone until there was absolutely nothing left, only to never have it reciprocated? There are some people in this life that no nothing more than how to take, while others that know nothing more than how to give, until there is nothing left. Are you a taker or a giver? How much do you have left? What are you willing to give? Would you give everything for the one you love…until you are nothing?
