Michael Carney is an Adelaide based visual artist who predominantly works in painting and ceramics. His work often presents as a collaboration between historical and contemporary aesthetics that explore notions of time, apocalypse, and the sublime.
Carney’s work demonstrates the tension between controlled meticulous detail and vigorous gestural or decaying elements, playing with the contrasting notions of permanence and ephemerality. This approach also allows for a physical, body-in-action approach to making work where spontaneity and vigorous movements can be perfected and refined but also left incomplete and broken.
