Biography

Best known for his brightly-colored, playful sculptures with idiosyncratic titles, Nathan Carter creates two- and three-dimensional works made from conventional materials such as Plexiglas, wire, and wood as well as small “street treasures” the artist finds on walks through his Brooklyn neighborhood. Like his drawings and collages on paper, Carter’s playful, delicate mobiles and standing sculptures possess a precarious sense of balance. The collection entitled “Radio Transmission Contraptions” (2008) demonstrates Carter’s ongoing interest in technologically moribund forms of communication.
