With more than 170 sculptures, drawings and paintings, this is the first comprehensive view of the art of Renaissance man Arthur Carter.
Carter's artwork was initially inspired by his work in newspaper design.
His sculptures, though purely abstract, allude to human gestures and interactions.
While Carter is known primarily for his sculpture, his drawings and paintings are revealing in their own right.
Informed by a deep familiarity with the modernist artists he admires most - Mondrian, Kandinsky, Arp, Bracque and Picasso, among others - they are noteworthy for their economic means and subtle compositions.They offer insight into the artist's thought process and reveal another layer in what is ultimately a distinctly personal vision.
With thorough exploration of the work by art historian and journalist Charles A.
Riley II and a biographical note by Peter Kaplan, editor in chief of "The New York Observer", "Arthur Carter: Sculptures, Drawings, and Paintings" presents the delightful and compelling artistic vision of a fascinating man.
