Experimental & Candid
Carly Siciliano is a Los Angeles based interdisciplinary artist. She mixes graphic design with Instagram AR lenses and photography while preserving her candid and curious approach along the way. Siciliano connects the viewer with the visual story and searches for new ways of expressing herself.
Experimental and candid. I like to experiment with new ways of seeing things. I shoot a lot of double exposures and split frame shots to tell more of a story. My surroundings are a huge influence – I tend to infuse my subject with the setting around us.
Siciliano’s photography portfolio includes mostly portraits. She captures models in natural environments, overlaying people and landscapes. In her photographs, you’ll see more than one facet of the story. Using soft and washout colours, mystic shades of pink and blue, the artist captures the intimate expression of both human and nature.
I start with a feeling and colour then just go with the flow. I like creating moods.
It’s easy to notice a sense of poetry, the vibrancy of movement, and the overall dreamy perspective. As a result, that’s no surprise that the artist’s favourite pieces are “long exposures at an empty beach during sunset”. Long exposures allow her to create a strong relationship with the environment and deliver natural-looking images. And while doing that for commercial purposes can be challenging, Siciliano finds reward in “collaborating with other artists and companies – coming together to create a vision”.
Her curious and innovative approach wasn’t set back by the pandemic. The artist always finds new ways to reach her artistic destination and extend her portfolio. Whether she’s working for a commercial brand or herself, Carly Siciliano delivers the same good vibes and dreamy moods. There’s always something to discover, explore, and reinterpret.
