The creative arc of the painter, composer and poet C. Damon Carter is nearly Bunyanesque in its variety and breadth. Carter's most influential teacher was Earle Brown, the composer of open-form graphic compositions--forms influenced by Brown's friends Alexander Calder and Jackson Pollock. During the past two years Carter has completed more than 300 paintings, developing themes from the natural world, from legend, and from ideas initially explored in his music and poems. The noted graphic artist P. Craig Russell wrote: "As opposed to so many abstracts I've seen, it's not a surprising stretch to say that C. Damon Carter's seem the most liquidly musical." Carter's paintings are on exhibit at "Gallery C. Damon Carter" in New Rochelle, NY, and are regularly updated at www.CDamonCarter.com
