Carter exhibition on view @ Georg Kargl in Vienna

Carter’s latest body of work, American Painting,  is on view in the solo exhibition at Georg Kargl Gallery in Vienna through April 29, 2017.

“For his third solo exhibition at Georg Kargl Fine Arts, Carter has swapped the brush for a manual sewing machine, has interwoven towels into the picture support and has changed his reduced color range from blue, grey and black to a rich multicolored spectrum. Although paint is still applied to the surface he has introduced an incredibly detailed stitching using brightly colored thread. Nevertheless Carter’s artistic style remains unique, distinctive and individual.”- Georg Kargl website
