Sara Carter lives and works in San Francisco, California. A native of Houston, Carter attended the University of Texas and the San Francisco Art Institute where she received a B.F.A.
Sara Carter’s paintings are a contrast between light and dark. The layering of geometric forms in Carter’s work are used to convey space. Within this framework of constructed layers emerges a highly personal de- scription of an environment charged with logical sequencing and subtle emotion.
“Conforming her wide brush strokes to a loose grid on square canvases, Carter layers acrylic, generally from light to dark, in paintings that seem to have radiant cores... The deep-centered grids of Ed Moses may come to mind, as may the psychologically charged contrast of dark foreground and bright distance in some of Edward Hopper’s work.” Kenneth Baker, San Francisco Chronicle, October 19, 2002
