A SPECIFIC Weakness

The artwork of Glenn Carter takes you into another world, one that is ancient and perhaps lives in the vastness of the sky or even underground. The experience can be religiously musical - like listening to graceful chants of a foreign language, laced with years of wisdom and a forgiveness in humanity. The sculpture materials are worn, weathered, beaten, and beautiful. “A Beckoning Way” was one of twelve works exhibited, is altar-like, and includes an ash pile, forcing viewers to walk around and realize the human body eventually returns to its carbon state.  Carter states: “The work presented provides a visual stimulus for entering a state of questioning, or of confusion, or of clarity, or, perhaps, as a means of informing oneself about the way in which we view our perceived reality. The nature of the work is to be both beautiful and disorienting.”
