Any post that starts and stops with an ‘in progress’ video, well, you know it’s gonna be good! Acrylic paint on hand-carved panel, murals that turn corners, and a new, large-scale piece in action. Sigh. This is the gorgeous work of Oakland based artist Carmen McNall, and this is her artist statement:

“My work tells the stories of female figures of strength, focusing on those who work with their hands; keeping alive the artifacts of humanity. I find great power in the passing down of trades from generation to generation, commanding a presence and pride as craft-makers and workers of dying traditions. Incorporating patterns I find in nature, I reflect on the relationship of people and their environments as times change and we change. 

Through my work, I try to recreate the emotional content of a time, place or face that I fear will be lost in the near future.  I am interested in capturing the odd experiences of the human condition. The simple, quiet moments between large events.  The impacting details that make up life that are easily forgotten.”

Beautiful. Happy Friday.
