Carla Caletti


Art is a language I use to articulate the less rational and more mysterious realms of being human. An exploration of inner landscape and worlds real and imagined, are inherent in my process 


The abstracted figures in my paintings act as a cross between super heroes and totemic beings, guardians that bridge the seen and unseen. They surface in some ways with my knowing; slipping in through the cracks. 


I use wax and paper with acrylic paint to add layers and depth to the surface. The process of adding and removing materials creates a sense of time and for me, speaks to the impermanence of physical realms. 


As a self taught artist, I mostly learn by hours of experimentation alone in my studio, using materials on hand, often recycled ad found to reconfigure disparate parts into a new whole. 


My studio is located in Madrid, NM
