Artist: Carly Waito

Crystals have healing powers.  I am fascinated by them and affected by them.  I can feel the heat and vibrations from powerful ones.  Dr. J and I collect them.

Carly Waito is a Toronto based artist who is able to capture the spirit of a crystal in paintings. 
These are painting- not photographs! 






From the artist's statement:
In these works, diminutive specimens of semi-precious gems and minerals are rendered in meticulous detail, exposing the beauty and logic of their structural minutiae.



From the artist's information page:
Through curating minerals, photographing them in macroscopic detail and rendering them in oil paints, Waito employs a layered process highlighting the ties between mimesis and levels of value. 

For those based in Toronto, Narwhal at: 
680 Queen St. West 
is running an exhibition of her work, called Specimens, until Oct 2nd 2011
