WAS Artist of the Week…

Carrie Bloomston: Painter, Phoenix

Artist Statement: I paint worlds because they don’t exist and I want to go to them – each with a logic and a weather, an emotional temperature, a quality of light. Landscapes of the interior. These spaces become for me enduring visual mantras. The landscape is always present in my work – how things grow and live in context of each other, forms in space, living side by side. One mark can become mountain, tree, mist, unknown, figure or ground. The mark is objectified- sometimes alone, sometimes not. In a way, the mark becomes the emptiness – a place where we might put things or qualities, a place where we might go.

You can view a selection of Carrie’s paintings at G2Gallery in Scottsdale.
