Carl Melegari’s layered figures

Carl Melegari explores both the human form and the urban landscape. He primarily focuses on the semi-abstraction within the figure. Often working from life and models, Melegari explores how the physicality of the paint combined with the density of pigment can give a sense of life radiating from the canvas. Through the veils of layers, achieved by continuously accumulating and scraping back the paint, a figure emerges as if to suggest how the sitter itself has become enveloped and partly obscured by the energy of the paint.
