Michael Carini | More Than Most

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.”

“Reflection, Rebuilding, Redemption, And Rebirth Of The Repentant” reflects upon and highlights the only person boxing you in and holding you down in life. It’s you. You are the only person that can change your life and it’s not always a one time thing. Sometimes you have to pick yourself up again, and again, and again. 

It all begins with a conversation with yourself. You have to be honest with who you really are, where you really are, and why you’re really there. It’s nobody else’s fault. This is on you. You must then forgive everyone that has ever hurt you, including yourself. From there, you need to tear yourself down back to the core and rebuild. You have to fill all of the cracks in the foundation that you tried to avoid and cover your entire life. Only then can you truly free yourself and be reborn to rise like a phoenix. 

There are going to be a lot of dark nights in this life. Ignite your own flame and become your own light. Use that light to guide yourself and to share with those still trapped in their own darkness.

Featured: The Day Pandora Set Me Free (Misteriora). Acrylic on canvas. This bright and energetic painting tells the story of Pandora’s Box being opened. Being “The Boy In The Box” it also alludes to me escaping and discovering my freedom from within the box. With that freedom comes an inherent energy and chaos that must be channeled. Knowledge may be a dangerous weapon, but it’s also a great and beautiful gift that can save the world if handled with both love and care.

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: On The Broken Road Between Reality And Truth. Acrylic, Earrings, and Cloth on Panel. 30 x 48. 2010. I created this painting when I discovered that my best friend and muse, Deanne Hastings, had been found after being declared a missing person for several days during her trip home in 2010. This painting contains pieces of a letter I wrote her (reflecting upon my thoughts and what I wanted to say to her at that time) as well as her earrings and some cloth she had left me the last time I had seen her. We all lose our way at one point or another. Keep your eyes open for the spark that will illuminate your path On The Broken Road Between Reality And Truth-

In 2015, Deanne went missing again and has yet to be found. She was a troubled young woman but had the world inside her and she made me a better person. I wouldn’t be where I am or who I am today without her.

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.
