Arthur Carter: Sculptures and Drawings
Arthur Carter is best known for his monumental sculptures at 90 Park Avenue South and at New York University’s Bobst Library near Washington Square in New York City. Carter’s exhibition includes abstract sculptures and wall-mounted reliefs and drawings. Grounded in the lyrical abstraction of geometry, his work features elegant and meticulously executed squares, circles, lines and ellipses. The precision inherent in Carter’s work reflects his lifelong interest in music, having trained as a classical pianist in his youth. He is equally fascinated with mathematics and experiments with the ancient Fibonacci sequence, the geometry of the golden ratio, and the Mobius strip. The sophistication and elegance of Carter’s work is the reflection of his analytical mind and a Constructivist and Modernist aesthetic.
