Carnovsky perhaps makes some of the most thought provoking work of recent years. Also the work has this amazing WOW factor. They seem to take control your eyes when you see the gallery covered in the work. The RGB work is the biggest mind fuck I have ever stumbled across. It hurts the eyes to stare but this does not deter most from trying to see the three groups and pointing out what is being shown.

Carnovsky has a long track record for taking on thought with their work, although most of the work that they produce is really sculpture. But more than anything the work that is shown makes one think. The illustrations in the RGB collection are quite amazing. Without the ability to read Italian there is really not that much written about the group.

RGB seems to have been going on for a few years and appeals to the inner workings of the human eye. With different colored source lights the illustrations change. Some of the more ambitious pieces have an attempt at movement and when viewed in a crazy RGB strobe movement is seen. Of late the three layers show different branches of the animal kingdom such as fish, mammals and insects.


  1. This is one of those pieces that I feel like you could look at over and over and over and see something new every time. Although its too chaotic for this, it seems like it would be cool for a doctors waiting room or something. I can imagine an annoying wait going by quickly if I had a piece like this to look at for 20 minutes.

  2. If you ever want a night club room in your house, this would be it. Wow i love art works that look like it took days to finish. The cool transparency effect really gives off this under water feel where everything is lucid and clear.
