On the heals of her massive and colorful installation, Spectrum, in the Garment District, artist Kim Carlino unveils her solo exhibition, In Here Together, at 324 Fifth Avenue this week. Her large-scale paintings on stretched tyvek explore her desire for structure within the surface, finding ways to peel it back to play with spaciousness and ambiguous fluidity, creating mystical and playful moments of connection and interaction. Carlino’s work has continued threads of abstraction, color, pattern and an ongoing dialogue with the tension between organic and structured.
The Garment District Alliance (GDA) is brightening Midtown Manhattan this spring with a vivid, painted mural titled Spectrum, created by artist Kim Carlino. The artwork – which contains 34 unique colors and is painted on 82 concrete blocks along the 7th Avenue pedestrian corridor – signifies the city’s vibrant comeback as New Yorkers and visitors return following the pandemic.
