DESCRIPTION

San Francisco Bay Area based artist Christopher Carter creates work in a variety of disciplines and media—both still and kinetic/interactive sculpture, paintings, woodcuts, and various types of installations. Carter’s sculptures are created from 19th century lumber, drawing connections between 19th century America and 21st century current events. Carter describes the exhibit’s 20 pieces: “The work collected for the show, STALWART, represents ideas I have wrestled with since 2003. The concepts I explore often necessitate a union of idea and material.” Born in Albuquerque, NM, and raised in Boston, MA, Carter’s work reflects his African American, Native American and European heritage.
