As every story has a past, present, and future, what may at first glimpse appear to be non-objective abstraction is in fact segmentations of energetic imagery interacting and breathing through the boundlessness of space and time. This painting is dedicated to my best friend and muse, Deanne Hastings, who tragically went missing in 2015 and has yet to be found. She once asked me to do a huge painting with a giant set of wings. This is my tribute to her. Deanne always called me her “Wings” but now she is mine and I will do whatever I can to keep her spirit alive with the beauty she inspired.

Featured: And Then I Found You Hiding In Plain Sight. Often times in life, what we seek is right in front of us, hiding in plain sight. Sometimes you just have to hold on long enough to notice it.

Behind The Paint-Working on the new painting I’ve been doing live on IG. “When Nobody Else Would Love Me (I Had To Learn To Love Myself)” is a work in progress much like myself. It requires daily effort and some days more than others. It’s necessary though to complete the painting…and to complete myself.

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

Featured: The Insatiable Monster Eating Away At Me From The Inside. Acrylic, Vodka, and Xanax on Panel. This painting takes a deep dark journey into personal demons and the things that eat away at the soul. Simultaneously, it reflects upon the simple and pure beauty of the battle back from those deep dark places. Sometimes is may even appear pretty on the outside while crumbling from within. We’ve all seen these places and some of us are still there. Keep fighting.

Michael Carini | Art Shop | 10 Year Table Canvas Detail

The “10 Year Table Canvas” spans a decade of visions, creations, and more than 10 bodies of work. Within its depths lies the tangible blood, sweat, and tears of the 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 the Acrylic Alchemist himself, Michael Carini.
