JAG GALLERY welcomes the return of painter Kaline Carter for a solo exhibition of his popular 'Key West Homes' series of clean, straight lined minimal compositions. Kaline often thinks of the color of the sky wherever he paints. "The color of the sky in Key West is very different from a place like Palm Springs-there is more water, more density in the color of Key West, so I try to replicate that in my work. I have had a little more fun adding some more intricate details into my Key West paintings lately-more challenging characteristics, like a bannister or fence. These details have provided me with a great challenge!"
Parsons trained, Carter slipped away from painting for many years until, as an advertising rep for SOUTHWEST ART magazine he met Texas artist Ann Crouch who nudged him back to the easel. Heavily influenced by artists Agnes Martin, Ellsworth Kelly, Frank Stella and others Carter eventually developed the process and technique of the signature style for which he is known today. Visit the gallery for a first glance at the preview reception Saturday May 14th from noon -5pm.
