7820 Notes

Based in Hamburg, Germany, Carina Crenshaw creates delicate paintings that experiment with color to convey different lighting conditions and moods. Crenshaw’s brushstrokes reminiscent are at times reminiscent of 20th-century abstract painting: blocks of color are built up next to one another to create works that appear flat despite their luminous effect. Crenshaw’s works zero in on subjects’ faces; they don powerful expressions that seem to place them in rich narrative contexts that the viewer must piece together based on the limited information. Take a look at some of Carina Crenshaw’s work below, images courtesy of the artist. MORE: http://hifructose.com/2013/01/14/carina-crenshaws-luminous-expressive-close-ups/
