Once in a while I stumble across an artist who’s work touches on a number of my particular subject loves, and that is most definitely the case with carrie marill. Not only are her paintings and drawings amazing in their simple, flat, modern depiction of birds, houses, mushrooms and landscape but their compositions are surprising and the color palettes fresh. Beyond the fact that they are lovely to look at, there’s a deeper commentary going on here that’s very compelling. The intersections between human civilization and nature are being both sensitively and meaningfully explored in the art she’s making. To say that I’m swooning here is an understatement. I love, love, love this work.
