Creating organic forms in vibrant colors creates a feast for the eyes. Caruso changes your visual perspective.
“I want the viewer to sense the beautiful grace and visual chemistry in the fluidity and color relationships of my work. I want the viewer to be engaged in the depth of the 2 dimensional surface, to be drawn into the flow. To move through the painting, looking at the dot patterns from a new perspective. Actually seeing and feeling the energy and the vibration of the form and colors.
The dots are hand painted with only a paintbrush. No other tools are used.” ~Amelia Caruso
