The works were created in Leytonstone and Leyton over a period of 4 years and some have been exhibited as part of solo exhibitions in Milan, the UK and Hong Kong, before returning to their spiritual home. Much of the work created owes a great deal to the energy and creativity found in abundance in E11, its people and its fusion of urban and rural elements constantly inspiring and influencing the direction of Carne’s work.
Working primarily with calligraphy inks, graphite and liquids, such as tea, brandy and vodka Carne’s fascination with drawing focuses on the creation and manipulation of the drawn line. Images explore human, geometric and floral forms, in a combination of both literal and abstract translation and in response to images and situations encountered in daily life. Images are recorded in a dreamlike sense onto the page where physical boundaries are unimportant. His work creates a journey of escapism which focuses on scenes of awe and wonder, projecting a sense of abandonment and inviting the viewer to share and explore this inner realm.
Reminisce opens on Thursday 12 March 2015 and runs until Sunday 29 March 2015.
