    Information

    Galeria Arnés y Ropke is pleased to present “Faith in a Seed”, Rob Carter’s first solo exhibition at the gallery, on view February 8 – April 30, 2013

    Rob Carter uses photography, stop-motion animation, and time-lapse video to spotlight buildings and their shifting political and historical significance. Architectural themes and histories are invented or modified using physically cut-up and digitally manipulated photographic images of specific buildings, towns and landscapes. This process simulates paths of urban development and recontextualizes cultural traditions such as sport and religion. The interaction of plant life with these photo-structures represents the irrepressible strength of nature that our buildings attempt to shield us from, as well as the temporality and fluidity of the environs we inhabit.

    Rob Carter was born in Worcester, UK and lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. He received his Bachelor in Fine Arts from the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art, Worcester College, Oxford University Oxford, UK, and his Master in Fine Arts from Hunter College in New York City.

    His work has been presented in numerous institutions worldwide, most recently with the solo-commission awarded by Art in General, New York for the creation of “Faith in a Seed”. Carter’s work has also recently been included in exhibitions at The Field Museum in Chicago, De Vishal in Haarlem, the Netherlands, and Centrum Festiwalowe in Lodz, Poland among others. His works were also presented at the 8th Busan International Video Festival in Busan, Korea, and the 18th Stuttgart Festival of Animated Film in Stuttgart, Germany.
