About Carlo Vitale
My work is mostly abstract impressionist paintings in oil (sometimes acrylic, watercolor and prints.)
The paintings and prints are kinetic and metaphysical abstractions. This evolved in my work because I was in an automobile that was hit by lightening. As the lightening lifted the car off the ground I experienced some sort of dimension change. Visually, there was no color, only the most brilliant white that can ever be imagined and also the darkest black. When one stares at my paintings the same positive/negative effect should happen. (This also happens with Seurat’s work.) Capturing the moment like a photograph.
I am a Detroit area artist, part of the 2nd generation of the Cass Corridor Abstract Movement. I grew up in Detroit, by City Airport and now have studios in Macomb and in the Thumb (of Michigan). I also spent much of my childhood summers on a relative’s farm where I developed a deep love for that lifestyle.
Much of my work is influenced by farmland area views, quilt-like ideas, city and farmscapes and ideas from my family life.
I have a Masters degree from Wayne State University and have taught at Macomb Community College.
