Gallery

Carina Earl is an MFA graduate of the San Francisco Art Institute. Originally from New Orleans, she’s spent most of her life in the Washington DC area, and currently resides in Berkeley CA. Her work has been displayed in various galleries throughout DC, including MOCA DC, Del Ray Artisans, Gallery 123, and the Schlessinger Arts Center. In 2008 she was asked to lead and execute a mural with Mural Arts Philadelphia and Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful. She became involved with Trickster Arts Salon in San Francisco, which hosted a series of her pieces at Mission Control and Aspect Gallery. Her work has been shown numerous times at the Diego Rivera Gallery in North Beach, and in 2011 held a solo show at the Hive Mind Gallery in Oakland. At Stanford University, she displayed for “SMASH” and presented an art lecture for the  “Leonardo Art and Science Evening Rendezvous”. In 2014 she worked on a Collaborative painting project for San Francisco’s “Bloom Series”, and currently holds a permanent exhibition at Guava in Oakland, where she can often be found painting live for music and cultural events.

 

Carina’s interest in painting began when she received her first paint set in 1986, and has said that painting has enabled her to envision portals into other times and dimensions. Currently she is working on a body of large scale pieces called “Labyrinth of Infinite Doorways”, which focuses on a period about 4 billion years from now when astronomers predict the Milky Way will merge with neighboring Andromeda. Her concepts are based in the premise that life and consciousness are structural components of physics, and that eventually life will penetrate both star systems forming an elliptical biosphere of galactic proportions.
