Carter’s paintings presented at Salon 94 Freemans are comprised by brushstrokes and ink drawings layered on digitally altered and collaged photographs. Images dating back to and depicting interiors of 1940s and 50s serve simultaneously as part of Carter’s work and as imaginary spaces that house Carter’s work. With use of an array of art-historical references, Carter, allows his work to be in a sense disseminated, yet solid. Transcending the mere realm of influence, Pop-art, Art-Deco, Abstract Expressionism, modernist and Ancient Greek and Roman sculpture and busts are all actually incorporated within Carter’s work. The recognizable forms and patterns, tease the viewer, as they stay anonymous in their multitude of suggestions.
