"My paintings are focused on bringing to the fore the depth of the human condition. Drawing from reference points in the natural world and personal history I channel these into, often large-scale, physical works. Encapsulating visceral, sensory & emotional experiences, I use my whole body as a tool for expressive mark-making, layering & storytelling." Carrie Stanley, 2022
Carrie is an expressive figurative oil painter whose work delves into psychology and personal history via an automatic painting process which allows for a rich, unexpected and vibrant use of colour and marks. Her work seeks to acknowledge the journey and materiality of the paint itself as an important part of this process.
