THE PLACE TO FIND SANTA BARBARA ARTISTS

Metamorphographs

  • Montecito Aesthetic Institute (1150 Coast Village Rd, Suite H, Montecito)

This collaborative process begins with the singular photographs of Patricia Houghton Clarke, who captures images that are at once universal yet deeply personal. Inspired by Clarke’s photos, visual artist Stuart Carey puts paint to her photographic canvases and forges them into powerfully blended works called Metamorphographs.

Carey’s process begins with the selection of Clarke’s images that evoke strong emotional responses in him. This may include choosing to enhance the entire work with color or highlight a small part of the image, obscuring the rest using a variety of media, including acrylic, oil, metallic paint, and/or ink.

The result is a visual and intuitive “metamorphograph,” blending the artists’ visions and emotional tone into an image unique unto itself.

Artists reception on Friday, October 16 from 5:30-7:30pm. Gallery hours 9am-5pm Monday-Friday.
