Description

The Shenandoah Valley Art Center, during
the month of May, is exhibiting in the Cabell/Arehart
Gallery the artwork of Angus Carter,
a Staunton based artist working in mixed media, photography, and film. This series
of recent paintings are full of raw movement and powerful mark making. In his
own words: “The intent of my work has
never been to translate a clear vision into paint but more to strip away the
veil of consciousness and allow the recesses of the back of the mind to take
hold. Abandoning formal thoughts, forms develop from there, slowly taking shape
and illuminating thoughts that are often vague in my waking mind. Often those
ideas manifest themselves in chaotic forms and abstract figures that mirror my
sense of disconnection and disillusionment with the world at large. As I
proceed deeper into it, my work becomes a world where I don’t know what’s going
on anymore: a world struggling between idealism and harsh realities, one where
childlike figures intermingle with macabre forms, in a disjointed dance upon
the canvas. A world that simultaneously embodies all my hopes, dreams and
aspirations along with my fears, insecurities and failures and one that I’m
still trying to reconcile and make sense of as I create it.” Please join us and meet the artist on May 4,
from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m.
