DESCRIPTION

Carter's work investigates human gesture in its myriad forms through drawing, video and sculpture.
Humor and intellect are entwined and the familiar is often embedded with unexpected jolts.
The Love Letter is an ongoing project which originated with a personal letter from an older relative.
Carter has deconstructed/abstracted it for its linguistic, psychological, familial, historical and
aesthetic properties.
 
Carter's MFA is in Fiber and Material Studies from the School of the Art Institute in Chicago.
Her work has been exhibited at 500X Gallery where she was a member and Road Agent
Gallery, 2006 New American Talent and 2011 Texas Biennial at Arthouse at the Jones Center
in Austin, Corcoran Museum in Washington, D.C., The Sky Dive in Houston, artsReligare in
New Delhi and the Cheongju Craft Biennale in Korea. www.rebeccacarter.org
