Details — Click to read


Carrington’s luminous and finely detailed works describe a fantastic world that seems eerily familiar. Strange creatures, human, animal and mythological, inhabit landscapes and interior spaces, where they perform rituals of magic, incantation, transformation and regeneration. Carrington constructs scenarios, through painstaking detail, which encourage a suspension of disbelief, a dreamlike state, thus allowing the viewer to enter her vision of the world.
