Art By Carla E. Reyes

 
ARTIST BIO

Carla E. Reyes is a painter and mixed media artist that creates groupings of works in organic evolving series. Though different, they all share an interest in surface texture, explore a variety of traditional and unconventional materials, and respond to themes of nature and human existence. Artistic influences can range from indigenous art forms, to historical movements, to contemporary art; depending on the works and their intentions. Research and reading can play a part where deeper understanding is needed, as well as the collection of reference materials. Other works are more spontaneous and intuitive, driven by the hands-on process, over concept.

 

Carla E. Reyes received her B.F.A. in Restoration and Fine Arts from SUNY F.I.T., and her MA in Art Education at CUNY City College of New York, NYC. Carla also works as a decorative interior finisher, theater scenic artist, muralist, and artist educator. Carla’s artwork has been featured in a variety of publications and media including The New York Times, The New York Daily News, BBC World News, The Queens Chronicle, and more.

ARTIST STATEMENT

I am inspired by the colors and textures of nature, “primitive” and “folk” arts, and the interaction between natural and man-made surfaces. Through texture, abstract form, and image, I explore and allude to the fundamental elements and mysteries of nature and existence: impermanence, decay, regeneration, birth, growth, history, archeology and spirituality. Some collage materials come from nature, like branches, leaves, and sand; while others - household items like packaging twine or crepe paper.
