American artist Bill Carman has a new exhibition entitled “Unbalanced” opening today at Animazing Gallery in New York City. “Carman’s paintings feature elements inspired by the fantastical and dark images of Hieronymus Bosch, and are executed with the precision of Albrecht Durer. His sense of humor is evident in this collection of nearly 50 mixd-media pieces on copper, wood, and paper. His pieces are nebulous, skirting and defying traditional art genres. “I live on the fringe of mainstream fantasy/sci-fi, dip a toe into surrealism, flirt with symbolism and even occasionally scratch the surface of mainstream illustration…”
Carman has worked as a designer, illustrator and art director at universities, ad agencies, publishers, and large corporations. Since graduating from Brigham Young University with a BFA in visual communication/illustration and later with an MFA in painting, he has consistently free-lanced and exhibited. Carman is currently a professor teaching illustration and drawing at Boise State University.
“Unbalanced” runs through November 30, 2011. To see more works from this exhibition, visit Animazing Gallery. To see other works by Carman, visit BillCarman.blogspot.com.
