About the Artist:

The idea of meditation and contemplation play a major role in the paintings of artist Craig Carlisle. His paintings articulate indelible images which evoke an emotional response from the viewer. The series of heads are generally large canvas’s deliberately created on a scale that will empower a room. Each expression Carlisle creates in his paintings are meant to pull from one’s subconscious. The heads are typically anonymous and genderless, almost child-like. Carlisle opts to place the focus for the viewer on the expression of each head, thus eliminating the personal style we create for ourselves with hair or fashion.

“I never use humans as reference for my paintings, instead I create fictitious characters. Through these, I channel the emotions each of us experience in our daily lives.”  says Carlisle.
