Carly Burnell

Carly Burnell’s paintings, made with layers of oil paint, wax and silicone, appear to be in a perpetual state of change. Subtle shifts in color, stroke and transparency create a prismatic effect that captures and reflects light in their topographic vistas and microscopic events. Burnell creates romantic works with mirror-like surfaces that the viewer imbues with their own latent emotions—refracting and peering back at once.
