ebersmoore is pleased to announce its upcoming exhibition and artist Rob Carter's first solo exhibition in the States, "Stone on Stone".
Rob Carter’s videos and photographs examine paper as both a physical object and as a malleable document of the real. The work employs stop motion animation, time-lapse video and photographic ‘re-constructions’ to spotlight the iconic and political structures in our urban environment, especially sports stadia, skyscrapers, churches, and other historical landmarks. Recent work draws parallels between the inspiration of the natural world, and human manipulation and control of it in the past, present and future.
Carter received his BFA from the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art (Oxford, 1998). In August 2000 he relocated to New York to attend Hunter College, receiving his MFA in 2003. Since then he has exhibited his work in numerous locations in Europe and the USA. In May 2008 he opened a solo show in Madrid at Galería Fruela and a second solo exhibition in October at the Pastificio Cerere, Rome. In the same year he attended the Art Omi Residency, became a West Prize finalist, and was awarded a Marie Walsh Sharpe studio space for 2008-09. This Fall he will premiere a new video at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York, and in 2010 will work on an Art In General New Commission, plus take part in residencies in Krems, Austria, and at the Alquería de los Artistas, near Valencia, Spain.
