Harmony: the quality of forming a pleasing and consistent whole. At peace, unity, tranquility. The "Harmony" paintings are created in the spirit of light, fellowship, and our shared humanity. Each painting in the series incorporates a lot of white, a color associated with aspiration, humility and understanding. White is created by mixing all the colors of the spectrum together in equal measure and suggests unity. I hope these paintings will impart a sense of tranquility and calm balance, reminding us of what it means to be human.

Getting to Know David

David Carter’s atmospheric abstract paintings are a reflection of the natural world. He strives to create art that is at once sensitive and meditative, yet resonate and contemporary. David describes his creative practice as “finding” paintings, rather than “making” them. "My process is completely intuitive based," he says. "I start by laying in line or layers of color and find my way forward." Spontaneous expression and exploration are key to his inspiration. David is a self-taught artist who has spent many years of experimentation developing the visual grammar that he uses today. Prior to 1990, he was a landscape painter, the influence of which is visible in his current work. Through his abstract paintings, David strives to produce an intimate, visceral, and contemplative experience for the viewer.
