A Degree of Separation by Jamin Carter Hosted by The Regional Arts & Humanities Council Inc. December 12th- January 20th 

Precise, symbolic shapes and text layered amongst paint and ink, poured and brushed, characterize my work. I seek a relationship between aggressive external forces and stillness housed in practiced quiet. The paradox of symbols and language as simultaneously personal and public finds actualization in phrases with double meanings containing warnings, guidance and admonitions- “don’t…be soft”. The viewer’s interpretation is often dependent on their social proximity to the message. This dialogue (between art and viewer) is mirrored in the use of space and distance to describe the relative association between each element in the work. This process seeks to make sense of the contextual nature of meaning within a shared lexicon populated with contradicting experiences. The use of an established set of motifs combined with intuitive pouring, painting and mark making is a means of moving through the cracks of a heavyladen caste system of communication revealing a textured and ambiguous reality.
