For his long awaited second solo exhibition at moniquemeloche, Kendell Carter says, “I am looking to the formal abstraction of casual cultural signifiers and as a means of liberating a traditional knee-jerk discourse that is often centered in Subjective Blackness VS. Objective Mark Making. I am not rejecting identity, I am simply prioritizing and normalizing mark making. I am looking for the liberated nature of a postmodern American artwork via abstraction.”


Kendell Carter (American, born New Orleans 1970, lives Long Beach, CA) has an MFA from California State University in Long Beach, an Environmental Design BA from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, and a BFA from the Atlanta College of Art.
