It is said that time heals all wounds but perhaps that time comes in a different state of existence or unexpected ways and connections. I woke up this morning, before my alarm clock went off, from a vivid dream about my dad. It felt like the universe was telling me today was a day that someone somewhere might need to hear this ❤️

I used to paint exclusively in an effort to heal myself and my own wounds. Nowadays, I paint to hopefully inspire, but more so in an effort to save a life, perhaps one I don’t even know. I would love to help people grow but the first step to growth is survival…and some days merely surviving is growth. Hold on. The strongest often have the toughest battles. You can handle this 🔥

It is said that time heals all wounds but perhaps that time comes in a different state of existence or unexpected ways and connections. I woke up this morning, before my alarm clock went off, from a vivid dream about my dad. In an effort to shift my attention, I opened up IG and the first thing I saw was a beautiful story shared by Cat Zingano addressing the same thing. It felt like the universe was telling me today was a day that someone somewhere might need to hear this.

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.

Featured: .38 With A .38 (The Speed Of Eternal Stillness). This painting reflects the fraction of a second it takes to change an entire connection of intertwined lives and energies. It depicts a suicide victim being embraced by an angel at the moment of impact. I used to paint exclusively in an effort to heal myself and my own wounds. Nowadays, I paint to hopefully inspire, but more so in an effort to save a life, perhaps one I don’t even know. I would love to help people grow but the first step to growth is survival…and some days merely surviving is growth. Hold on.

Those that have been on the bottom have a deep appreciation for the little things in life, no matter how minuscule or minute, because they know what it means and how it feels to have nothing. That’s where the “Beautiful Accidents” series was born. 

Recycled art created from the remnants of my palettes, these “Beautiful Accidents” are based upon the Japanese aesthetic concepts of wabi, sabi, and shibui. Beauty is everywhere if you are only willing to open your eyes to see it. I challenge you to not only see it, but to create it and add to it today.

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.

Featured: “Light of the Phoenix” tells the story of a phoenix rising from the ashes. The painting has a variable orientation and each variation/orientation reflects a different part of the struggle and journey. Side 1 reflects a deep state of depression. Side 2 reflects being on your back, hitting bottom, and wanting to give up. Side 3 reflects crawling through hell. Side 4 reflects rising from the ashes and the “Light of the Phoenix”-

“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.

Acrylic is just a binder or vessel. I paint with straight fire and I can feel the heat building. A conflagration is coming-
