Phoenix rising commission painting in progress. Yesterday I worked the ashes of a painting I sacrificed and burned into this painting to give them new life like that of the rising phoenix.

“Within The Bounds Of Without”

Our only limitations are the ones we create for ourselves. This painting depicts my signature icon piercing the box I had created for myself. Only you can free yourself from your self-imposed box. I thought this would be a great piece to share today because of how it relates to my story (and possibly yours) as well as the celebration of Earth Day. 

In case you missed it, yesterday was a big day for me with the 10 Year Anniversary of the assault and battery that gave birth to Acrylic Alchemy and “The Up-Side Of Down.” If you want to see some of the news coverage & video clips, you can check out my blog at CariniArts.com 🙂

I did an Instagram Live video yesterday telling the story in full for the first time in 10 years. I’ll be doing another Instagram Live video today for any follow up questions. My Instagram handle is @acrylicalchemy for those that would like to tune in and check it out.

If you connect with my work or story, please share it. You make what I do possible. Thank you!

Michael Carini | Revelations and Regenesis

As every story has a past, present, and future, what may at first glimpse appear to be non-objective abstraction is in fact energetic imagery interacting and breathing through the boundlessness of space and time 🌹

Featured: “Revelations and Regenesis” is a painting of rebirth. It’s not only a story of discovering yourself, but rebuilding yourself from the bottom. It’s a painting of hope and promise.

As every story has a past, present, and future, what may at first glimpse appear to be non-objective abstraction is in fact energetic imagery interacting and breathing through the boundlessness of space and time 🌹

Featured: Falling Towards The Sky. Acrylic on canvas. Variable orientation. 60in x 96in. This painting is about being a dreamer, defying the odds of even physics, and doing the impossible. It’s one of my lighter, more hopeful paintings and a glimpse into heaven as a blue veil of clouds is pulled aside like a curtain so as to find a safe place to land and rest. This painting will have it’s upcoming gallery debut with Sparks Gallery in the Gaslamp Quarter. Stay tuned!

“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: You Can’t Save Me From Myself. Acrylic on panel. 30in x 48in. We are often waiting for a hero to come and save us from our lives but the truth is, in all likelihood, nobody is coming to save you. You must learn to become your own hero. You must learn to become whole on your own because you are the only person that can truly save you. Nobody else can save you from yourself.

As every story has a past, present, and future, what may at first glimpse appear to be non-objective abstraction is in fact energetic imagery interacting and breathing through the boundlessness of space and time.

Featured: Say Hello To Goodbye. Acrylic on canvas. 24in x 24in. 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” –
