Artists CV    artwork
Carla Dentamaro

In my artwork I am concerned with expression and feeling and I seek to depict these with emphasised mark making and colour. I enjoy working in various mediums, often combining techniques to evoke and explore the essence of nature rather than to merely duplicate. I am in love especially with the human form and the human condition which I find offer endless artistic possibilities.
