     Love Carbonell’s vision & textures, and his artworks’ spirit of playfulness mixed with an alien, knobby, biomorphic 60s Star-Trek prop vibe: A band of hot green radioactive rock candy arcing reptilian, a mutant crocodile’s tail. A lamp like a doughy leg cuff, lined thick with wet moss, looking less like a light-source and more like a disintegrator gun manned by some mid-60s arch-foe of the Fantastic Four. A woolly-bearded TV stand (I think) and seat, both Rip Van Winkled in a sly play on the timehole we can fall into while propped in front of our moving-picture device of choice. And a bench being coughed out of the maw of a spider’s bulbous abdomen. Pieces you want to climb into, walk among+interact with but also keep your distance from. Outstanding work in concept and execution.
