If you've been rolling with us from the start, you're aware of our never-ending love for the talented Carrie Marill. In fact, today's release—Lagomorph—is her 16th (!!!) edition with us. Ms. Marill's been one of our artists from the very beginning, releasing her first 20x200 edition shortly after our naissance, as well as participating in multiple shows at the gallery.
What keeps us coming back for more? Carrie's bright palette and her frequent depiction of animals is instantly appealing, but don't be deceived by her rainbow colors and adorable bunnies! To pigeonhole one of her pieces as a sweet animal portrait is to overlook its many intellectual layers. Art and science are often thought of as separate entities, but for Carrie, they are intertwined. She has said, "I use art as a tool to investigate the world." Today's Lagomorph, part of her String Theory series, is the gorgeous result of Carrie's scientific bent in action.
String theory—the leading candidate in the quest to answer, "What is the universe made of?"—can be difficult to wrap one's head around. Using art as her guide, Carrie creates striking works that express the philosophical idea of connectivity: if building blocks of the universe are strings, then we are all threaded together. She portrays the strings as bright, intricate strokes: winding around and through tree branches, decorating a tortoise shell, and here, creating the shelter for our Lagomorph.
If you find yourself wondering about the world around you, as curious about the stars above as the ground beneath your feet, then you've felt the threads of unity that Carrie Marill so beautifully incorporates into her work. Remind yourself of that connectivity every day with Lagomorph.
With art for everyone,
