“Reading the news about different developments taking place around the world has turned me into a chronicler of our time. How to present these ideas in an abstract vocabulary of form, line, color and texture is the quest. These are the challenges and creative instinct that intrigue me most,” Nanette Carter says. A self-described “builder fascinated by the act of bringing pieces together to create a work of art,” her multimedia on Mylar works evoke traditional African American abstract art. Her oeuvre also draws from the syncopated rhythms of jazz music, Japanese prints, and Russian constructivism, which emphasized geometric forms, simple fonts, and red and black.
