New England-based artist Megan Carty is known for infusing her paintings with a vibrant sense of positivity and a spirited palette of bold, energetic colors. Her newest collection of artwork, featuring sculptural paintings, celebrates the majesty of Mother Nature with vivid colors and marks inspired by the great outdoors.
Inspired by topographic maps, in each piece, Carty folds and manipulates raw canvas into mountains, valleys, lakes, and rivers as if seen from a passing plane. The canvas is dyed using acrylic inks, acrylic paint, and pencil. As visual inspiration, Carty refers to her numerous travels to Acadia National Park, Maine and Portland, Maine where she grew up. She is moved by the numerous colorful eco-systems on display, from the tide pools to the freshwater springs and lush forests.
