As internationally recognized artist, poet and musician, Carrie Able was a keynote speaker at the Kristal Elma Festivali in Istanbul on Oct 5th, 2017.

Able is currently an artist in residence at Jump into the Light in Manhattan’s Lower East Side. While VR painting technology is a new cutting edge media, Able has been working with oil on linen for over twenty years. A working portrait artist by the age of 14, Able’s earliest work focused on realism in the renaissance masters oil technique. However, her oil works of the past 8 years have increasingly danced the line between representative and abstract. Using no external visual references, imported files or sound bites, the artist creates directly from subconscious mind to hand.
