Currently on view at Lisa Cooley, New York is “Beside Myself,” a solo exhibition featuring new paintings by Carter. Moving seamlessly between painting, photography, drawing, sculpture, and film, Carter’s work manifests something invisible, an oscillation between absence and presence. The exhibition is aptly titled Beside Myself, a phrase chosen by the artist, because “it’s an intense definition of something ineffable – the idea that someone experiencing such an extreme state of emotion – good or bad – that one is out of one’s body, or has left the body…creating a double.” Carter’s paintings look to Cubism’s attempt to depict one person from all angles at once, portraying through painting the multiplicity of a series of moments.
“Beside Myself” is on view through April 27, 2014.
