Darel Carey takes something as simple as a line and creates new worlds and dimensions. The artist says that the work is partially intended to transform the space it inhabits, taking a flat surface and crafting entirely new depth. His projects have recently appeared in the Museum of Selfies, Edwardsville Arts Center, and other spaces. These spacial explorations share a kinship with the work of Felipe Pantone and others who alter everyday canvases.
