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.

Searching for hoMe

People often ask me if this painting title is a typo. It’s not. I’m on a journey to find myself. When I find myself, that’s when I’ll find home.

“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.

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 đŸŒč

In honor of International Survivors of Suicide…

In honor of International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day

This has always been an ongoing personal battle, most notably in 2011, just shortly before the following story. If you or someone you know is struggling with issues of suicide, call 800-273-8255

In August 2012, at the age of 28, I was reconnected with the biological family I never knew. At that time, I learned that my father, also named Michael, did not die in a car accident as I had always been told. Rather, I came to find out that he took his own life on my mother’s 21st Birthday, just shortly before I turned a year old. He did not leave a note. Almost 30 years later, in my most personal and emotional creation to date, I wrote that note for my father. Written through our collective heart, eyes, and hand, that piece of our soul is “Michael’s Note.”

“Michael’s Note” was followed by half a decade of critical introspection, reflection, and expression in the form of a visual history paradoxically representing a singular moment, time, and experience as well as momentum, time, and experience in their totality. Completed in the Spring at the age of 33 and given life in conjunction with the Summer Solstice, “Reign Upon Sonrise” is a five year meditative reflection of a simple complexity, or “simplexity.” A 49 canvas polyptych with a myriad of possibilities and experiences, this meditation is a personal and elemental narrative veiled under the umbrella of a fractalized spectrum of sub-narratives called “Reigndrops.” Peering into the human soul with no definitive beginning or end, may you enjoy your journey across the “Reignbough” and discover the enlightenment you seek in the “Reign Upon Sonrise.”

Dedicated to the father I never had the honor and privilege to know-

“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: I Will Finally Let You Love Me (Because I Learned To Love Myself). Acrylic and aerosol on panel. 25in x 40in. This painting is the 2016 sequel to “I Will Never Let You Love Me (Because I Could Never Love Myself)” from 2010. It took a lot longer than 6 years to cultivate self love. It’s a lifelong journey and a major work in progress because, to be honest, some days I’m just not feeling it.

Currently on exhibit at La Playa Gallery in La Jolla. See it for just a few more weeks 🙂

Featured: I Will Never Let You Love Me (Because I Could Never Love Myself). Acrylic on panel. 72in x 24in. 2010. One of my older and darker (yet brighter) pieces that reflects upon concepts of love and, specifically, self love.

Featured: Paradise Lost (And Rediscovered). Acrylic on Panel. 24in x 48in. Geometry and rations/irrational shapes have always been one of my greatest and most comfortable tools of communication. This painting is a little bit of Milton’s Paradise Lost with a sprinkle of Dante’s Inferno. Sometimes paradise has to be lost in order to be rediscovered.
