From the Galveston Arts Center:
“Gregory Michael Carter is a multidisciplinary artist working primarily in drawing, painting, collage, and photography. His exhibition, Port of Origin, includes works based on the concept of Black relics and include materials such as stone, papyrus, silk, basketball flooring, and Newport cigarette cartons. Through these works Carter interrogates the impacts of history on his current life through carefully constructed and coded ideograms that depict connections between various social and political issues. Gregory’s practice is rooted in an expanded view of history, with a particular interest in human interaction and how it causes the spread of culture in the modern world.
Gregory Michael Carter (b. Houston, TX) is an artist currently living between Houston, TX and St. Louis, MO, where he is developing an artist residency and community development program.
