Again through Pinterest, which I believe I check more than Facebook, I came across Carly Waito’s paintings. Then I found her website, blog and Coe & Waito. Busy busy talented creative Carly. I am attracted to realism in art, so I was firstly dumb-founded by her talent. But there is more to these precise duplicate representations of semi-precious gems and minerals, something seducing and spell-binding. And when reading about her work, this made perfect sense and I believe is completely justified: “beyond simple imitation, Carly Waito’s reproductions imbue further worth to objects that are naturally perfect”.
