In Memory Of Michael Kupka
Carrot.com began in 1996 by Michael Kupka at the Carrot Common in Toronto, Ontario, Canada as a site to promote local arts, non-profits, communities, and to facilitate neighbourhood small businesses on the Internet.
Michael focused on Stereoil based art.
The Stereoil Process (ST.P.) is a series of stereoview and stereoil paintings and drawings created from Michael Kupka’s original stereoview photographs. Stereoview paintings have been seen at the Boston Museum of Science, the Museum of Holography, New York City. Other galleries in Canada and the U.S. have shown more comprehensive shows. With the exception of Canadian Art Gallery, Calgary, all shows have been non-commercial with informative (educational) aspects.
“Stereoil paintings express on one surface; what both eyes saw at a particular moment, focused on one point in space. This is a totally unique attitude, never before developed in art. It began in 1973. Every other artist paints with one eye. Why? Who knows. The vision, the idea, accomplishes many situations. Two views; simple cubism. A face creates a face; two eyes see two eyes. Hidden faces are created scientifically. Dali realized the face but not where they came from. Even a beautiful scene as the beach can appear quite frightening. You may not realize why these paintings “bother” you. Part of it is subliminal peripheral realisticism, binary conceptualism.
