When

-

Arthur Carter (b. 1931 New York, NY; lives and works in New York, NY) is best known for his monumental sculptures at 90 Park Avenue South and New York University’s Bobst Library near Washington Square in New York City. Carter’s exhibition at the Museum included abstract sculptures and wall-mounted reliefs, and drawings. Grounded in the lyrical abstraction of geometry, his work featured elegant and meticulously executed squares, circles, lines, and ellipses. The precision inherent in Carter’s work reflected his lifelong interest in music, having trained as a classical pianist in his youth. He is equally fascinated with mathematics and experiments with the ancient Fibonacci sequence, the geometry of the golden ratio, and the Mobius strip. The sophistication and elegance of Carter’s work is the reflection of his analytical mind and a Constructivist and Modernist aesthetic.
