From a glade filled with ferns golden in the evening light to a tiny flower blazing with fleeting glory, Wagner's powerful compositions help the viewer to focus on the loveliness of each preserved moment in time.
Wagner's work evolves slowly with many thin glazes of oil paint, creating luminous, deep surfaces on the canvas. Each painting involves hundreds of hours of work and meticulous attention to detail.
Carin Wagner received a degree in advertising design in a practical attempt to support herself, but she soon abandoned practicality and threw herself into mural work and fine art. Having taken only a few classes in drawing and painting while pursuing her advertising degree, she is largely self-taught.
