Carter lives and works in New York. Carter’s works – typically photographic collages or dense, layered, ink drawings – are a form of deflected (or defective) self-portraiture. Carter’s works on paper are assembled – in a manner akin to a police “Identikit” image, or a “Mr. Potato Head” figure – from pre- drawn fragments that depict bodily parts and facial characteristics (profiles, hair styles, moustaches, beards, noses, ears, mouths, eyes, etc.), and invariably make reference to the artist’s own physiognomy. As in his photographic collages – in which two images, often Polaroid or passport-style portraits of the artist are literally juxtaposed one on top of another: with details from one image ‘infecting’ or ‘corrupting’ the other – Carter’s drawing seek to obscure, or confuse, notions of self-identity (and identification).

Like Arnulf Rainer’s psychologically charged, modified photographic self-portraits, Carter’s visceral work presents human identity (and sexuality) as kind of mask: a series of options, or variables, that not only reveal our culture’s fascination for body augmentation (e.g. TV’s ‘Nip/Tuck’) but also reveal our profound unease with the body. Carter’s work references a time when these “options” weren’t options, but rather necessities in the construction of the closet, as in Rock Hudson’s 1966 film, “Seconds.” There, plastic surgery transforms Hudson’s character from straight-laced, Manhattanite businessman into an artist living in Malibu, CA. The new Rock is an idealized portrait, cobbled together from disparate, altered parts. It is this type of dissemblance that is referenced in Carter’s collaged drawings and Polaroids.

Conclusions:

Carter uses abstracted drawing as a means of investigation into the shifting concepts of the human body and personal identity. In Untitled, Carter presets a diptych of two rivalling fields of blob-like specimens, each self-contained like Petri dishes nurturing biological mutation. Using his own features as a control for experimentation, Carter’s two panels show subtle variations of the same forms, his abject and non-descript shapes converge as a catalogue of physical possibilities: eyes, lips, noses, and hairstyles float as disembodied samples for facial alteration, while geometric patterns clinically emerge as cell structures, globular tissue, or rough landscapes ripe for cultivation.

German Artist Thomas Helbig at the Saatchi Gallery

Thomas Helbig’s abstractions strive to capture the essence of power. Within his raw canvases, Helbig alludes to the unwieldy forces of nature, and the representational modes used to harness its vastness. Stylistically, Helbig recycles art history, implicating visual language as reflective of ideology.

German Artist Jorg Immendorff at the Saatchi Gallery

Jorg Immendorff’s most famous accomplishment is his Café Deutschland series, begun in 1977 and continued through the 1980’s. His imaginary nightclub sits on the east-west border, an independent territory where the burlesque theatre of cold-war politics, national identity, and battle of artistic legacy is played out night after night in all its subterfuge and drama.

German Artist David Noonan at the Saatchi Gallery

Noonan presents a fabricated vision that is awesome in its complexity. Using the liturgy of art itself as a departure point for invention, Noonan conceives his work as ‘documentation’ of plausible performances: his cast of characters are positioned as participators in highly elaborate artworks, invoking covert and futuristic ritual.
