Carter Primary

Isolated, fragmented, drawn, and photographed body parts are the basic components in Carter’s (born 1970) images, existing alongside hints of landscape. Swirling notions of identity, sexuality, portraiture, and disguise create the "stand-in," "dummy," or idea of "someone" existing in a floating historical time frame.

Carter was included in the Whitney Biennial (2006), and in USA Today: New American Art (2006), organized by Saatchi Collection and presented at the Royal Academy of Art, London.
