My art is more than an attempt to capture or document the world around me. I try to create an experience which is like taste or smell, something that lingers with the viewer, informing their experience, not only of my work, but of their lives. Paintings are not only of significance on a gallery wall, but should be carried around in the minds and imaginations of those who they touch. Like children, they have lives of their own beyond that which the artist intends, and that, to me, is where art comes alive.
Carlo lives & works in South London, has an ongoing obsession with painting St Paul’s Cathedral & views across the Thames, & is also an Art Therapist.
