Emerging Artist: Jeaneen CarlinoJuxtapoz // Tuesday, 23 Feb 2010
Jeaneen Carlino is a Los Angeles based painter who describes her work as “a metaphysical embellishment of a hinterland dreamscape that has developed based on the necessity to escape from the complexities of life.” On a simpler note, we really dig her mixed media paintings.
Utilizing a plethora of materials, from acrylic and aerosol paint, to silver leaf and graphite on wood panel, Jeaneen explores the power of the feminine; “heroines and villainesses.” According to the artist, “These women possess a joyful serenity that comes only to those who feel they are in harmony with the universe. […] These ornately fashioned mythological females are inspired from various forms of primeval folklore that resonate within my psyche. […] They fight for their integrity and they inspire me to live accordingly.”
With bright colors and rich patterns, Jeaneen’s paintings morph women and animal imagery together for work that is truly engaging.
