CAROL INEZ CHARNEY

The process photographer Carol Inez Charney has developed results in photographs that are painterly, abstract celebrations of color. Beginning with a digital image, Charney reshoots the print with a medium format film camera through water on glass. Using high-resolution scans she pushes images to the places she wants them to be, and the resulting works are layered, visually complex compositions. Although often starting with images of recognizable locations or famous artworks, the resulting images hold but the faintest clues of what they contain. Dripping or frozen water, reflections, and a shift between areas of clear and soft focus, the works are as much paintings as they are photographs. 

Charney received a BA in painting from the University of California, Santa Cruz, CA, and an MFA in Photography from San Jose State University, San Jose, CA. She has shown her work at galleries across the country, and in museums such as the Museum of Sonoma County, Santa Rosa, CA; San Jose Museum of Art, San Jose, CA; and the Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life, Berkeley, CA. She has received numerous awards, and her photographs are part of collections including the AT&T Art Collection, New York, NY; Microsoft Art Collection, Redmond, WA; and the Escalette Permanent Collection of Art at Chapman University, Irvine, CA.
