Christopher Carter was born in Albuquerque, N.M., and raised in Boston. Carter infuses a blend of ethnic and urban influences in all of his artistic work. His bold and decisively organic sculptures strongly reflect his African-American, Native American and European heritage. His assemblages embody power and energy accentuated by the source materials he selects for his creations. Rarely using anything “new,” Carter fashions a chorus of images composed of recycled woods, metals, glass shards, ropes, resins and a variety of discarded objects that, when united seek, to depict traditional concepts in an innovative and creative way.
