Carina Francioso is an internationally recognized Visual Artist with works held in private collections in Canada, USA and across Europe. Carina Francioso’s obsession to detail and meticulousness is clearly demonstrated through her realistic oil paintings. It is her attention to detail that won her the Jocelyn Cowan Award, recognizing artists for their excellent performance in painting, as well as the Pencil and Paper Prize for drawing.
In a statement Carina said: “As a contemporary painter I endeavour to express the world’s gift of water and acknowledge that it must be cherished and preserved. In addition, a portion of the proceeds of my water works go towards various water focussed charities.
Inspired by the calm or turbulent, incessantly changing waters of the world, my current work expresses the beauty and power of the sea and ocean in all its forms. These different states of water reflect our daily lives and emotions; at times serene, fluid and calm, other times stormy, chaotic and filled with confusion.
Therefore my work is really depicting our culture with all its ebbs and flows. In addition to smaller works I often use large-scale canvases or wood panels as they heighten the memory of the experience, bringing it to life and capturing the vastness of water.”
