Mike Carney explores balance through illusion and deception, creating relationships of image-based representation to tangible, sculptural objects. Often the perceptual and physical space of painting collides through the use of non-traditional materials and interruption of the painted plane.
Mike has been the subject of a feature interview in Juxtapoz Magazine and has been published in New American Paintings. His work has been exhibited in various galleries in Chicago, Minneapolis and Los Angeles. In 2014, Mike received a Masters of Fine Arts degree from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where for two years he was a Helen Russell Memorial Scholar. Upon completion of his graduate studies, he received a Municipal Art League Fellowship. His work appears in many collections, including the Jiminez-Colon collection.
