About Carlos’ work:
Carlos Quinto Kemm creates stunning painted collage interpretations of the dream-like and mystical. His use of color, texture, and dimension lure the eye deep into the image. Each scene is rich in detail as well as a myriad of mythological, literary, and art historical references that play hide and seek within the composition. The complexity of his work is evidence of his extensive visual vocabulary and passion for collage which he notes is a useful medium to “stimulate imaginative awakenings.”
“Allied to visionary and mystical pathways, my work feeds my questing need to make sense of life’s purpose. It is my heartfelt desire to give visual dialogue to those levels beyond personal symbols that will speak of the complexities of modern life in an age of incomprehensible madness.”
