Q + A: Carissa Karamarko
TAKING HER CUES FROM THE LENS OF A CAMERA, CARISSA KARAMARKO REINVENTS HER GENRE.
Describe your work in a sentence…
A less conventional still life, defined by a whimsical investigation of objects through colour and texture.
What is your process?
I like to work from photographs. I find viewing my subject through a lens, whether that be a still life arrangement or something out in the wild, helps me understand my perspective. I’ll then print the photograph for my process diary alongside scribbles, paint swatches, fabric and any other medium I need to find the painting.
What’s coming up for you?
I’ve been preparing for my next exhibition at Saint Cloche Gallery in Paddington, a duo show with ceramicist Emily Brookfield opening in January.
