About Nanette Carter
Nanette Carter coined the term “scapologist” to describe her practice of creating sea, sky, and landscapes in which she explores political themes and the drama of human nature. These fictional, natural worlds provide the artist with a space to visually reflect on the coexistence of injustice and benevolence in contemporary society. Working exclusively on frosted Mylar, Carter applies layers of paint, markers, and pencil to produce textural yet luminous pieces.
