Paintings by Carly Waito.
I refuse to believe that these are paintings.
w h o a.
A rather brutal realism abounds. Incredible…
I was fortunate enough to see these pieces in person, and they are mind blowing. Love this series!
They are even more awesome in person! If you are in TO check em out: http://www.narwhalartprojects.com/
i second this!
as much as i absolutely love these i really wish that they were just huge so that i could be completely immersed in them. but fantastic nonethe less it reminds me alot of the bacon cube by cindy wright
I certainly admire the amazing skill and craftsmanship, but I never understand why to paint what camera can do it!!
dear saya – may I ask you – did you ever tried to understand ?
I’m not convinced even a camera could capture the light and the details in this manner, these are brilliant!
considering the blur of the stones as they recede into space, i’m pretty sure that these are painted from photographs, so, if anything, the paintings have lost information in their translation from photo to painting.
I think Saya’s point is that this focus seems to be on “i can’t believe the amount of work that went into the creation of these” rather than “i feel an incredible connection with these.”
Your style is unorthodox, but effective
