A multitalented Renaissance man who had previous careers as an investment banker and newspaper publisher prior to his devotion to sculpture, Connecticut-based Arthur Carter uses the foundations of mathematics to create intricate and versatile sculptures in various media. He employs complex ideas to fabricate multidisciplinary and straightforward compositions. His works are often appropriately situated among natural elements and bustling urban landscapes, imbuing vitality and motion into otherwise stationary, grid-like structures. The surfaces of his sculptures are enhanced by the changing atmospheric conditions and purposeful light vibrations of the outdoor environments in which they are exhibited, fluctuating between bright reflective mirrors and more subdued reverberations. As Carter has said about his practical approach to his art, “Purity in both design and business function means never dilute, never diffuse, and never bloat.”
