Steven Carrelli

Steven Carrelli works primarily in painting and drawing. His recent body of work, Profane Mimesis combines direct perceptual, experience and art historical imagery. Many of his works simultaneously use and subvert the practices of tromp-l'oeil by suggesting illusion of space and then throwing that illusion within the same composition. This collection is inspired by Hans Holbein the Younger's 1533 painting The Ambassadors and examines the formal and expressive possibilities of representation.
