The paintings that Carina has presented in the occasion of the Arc Vision 2019 at Arcadia Gallery are simply breathtaking.
She has created a complete portrait of the sea, viewed from all the different viewpoints that characterizes it.
She makes us feel peaceful sensations in the small work titled “The Adriatic Glistens“, where the monochromatic shades of the blue scale with white sparkles create a sort of abstract form.

The sun reflects itself in her painting “Sotto Lo Stesso Sole (Under The Same Sun)“, spreading its golden light everywhere on the scene and creating a meditative and hypnotic movement. Feelings are totally different in “Remembering Ka’anapali“, in which with different perspective and colours, Carina shows a wave that breaks to the shore, giving us even the illusory feeling of perceiving the sound of the sea.

This path leads us to what we can define her masterpiece: “Il Soffio della Vita“, a monumental two canvas diptych to which she worked for a whole year, giving every part of herself to this piece and proving herself as an artist. In this work you can see tumultuous waves that reveal the power of the sea in all its wild nature.

“The different states of water reflect our daily lives and emotions; at times serene, fluid and calm, other times stormy, chaotic and filled with confusion”.
