EXHIBITION: Feb. 4th - Mar. 2nd | 688 Sutter, San Francisco.
"Available Space" by artist Cole Carter is a series of naturally found and manually arranged objects, which have been digitally manipulated into a visual communication between organic and non organic shapes, patterns, and textures. Influenced, by Kurt Schwitter’s Merz collages- I create photographic assemblages of familiar spaces, surfaces and junk from the world around me.
Each image contains multiple photographs, various opacities and digital manipulations that re-imagine the natural scene set before my camera into an improbable two-dimensional surface.
The resulting images are the outcome of not allowing the visual information and personal aesthetic to stop at the release of my shutter.
Carter's interpretation of texture and natural patterns allow you to experience the creativity behind the lens.
