SANTA ANA, Calif. – A collection of paintings of portraits and landscapes are on display in the Thomas F. Riley Terminal as part of John Wayne Airport’s Community Focus Space Program. Irvine artist Dennis Carrie’s paintings can be seen on the Departure (upper) Level near the security screening areas in Terminals A, B and C, and on the Arrival (lower) Level adjacent to Baggage Carousels 1 and 4, now through February 16, 2015.
Carrie’s portrait paintings strive to achieve a sense of realism and emotion that connects the viewer with the attributes of the individual in the painting. Inspired by the Orange County environment, his landscapes like Ocean Symphony below, depict the beauty and majesty of certain environmental elements like the Pacific Ocean.
“All of my paintings are the result of careful observation, study and thought,” said Dennis Carrie. “The objective is always to convey respect for the subjects, representing them with the honesty and integrity that they deserve.” Carrie has a Master of Fine Arts degree in Figurative Painting and his paintings have been on display in art galleries and exhibits throughout Southern California.
