“My artwork derives from the exploration of the inner self, and its contrast with the physical world. I use dreams and the subconscious as a starting place to envision new imagery. I strive to create pieces that incorporate a sense of spirit or mind-body interrelationship, and at the same time tell a story.

“In 1897 Edward Muybridge produced a time lapse set of images of a woman descending a staircase that was one of the inspirations for Marcel Duchamp’s painting in 1912, Nude Descending a Staircase, No. 2. In my work, I have been interested in using motion to describe the spiritual journey that we all are a part of. This work continues that exploration.”

Carson Zullinger has exhibited extensively for 40 years including the Delaware Art Museum, the Biggs Museum of American Art, and The Delaware Contemporary, and is represented in museum and private collections. In 2014 he was awarded a Masters Artist Fellowship from the State of Delaware.
