About the painting
Axis 13 was exhibited in the prestigious Calleen Art Award 2017, Cowra Regional Art Gallery, where Carosi was a finalist.
"Axis 13 offers a tectonic treatment of the space between figuration and abstraction, concentrated through the lens of my relocation to regional NSW. Working from the perspective that all abstraction is landscape, Axis 13 challenges the idea of line as horizon, exploring instead the notion that, especially in inland areas sustained by river and irrigation systems, line is more accurately thought of as incision."
