About Jim Carter

 
 
  • Biography
    My practice is concerned with animism and telling animal stories through words and sculpture. More often than not they are about land and wildlife and a sense of its power and vulnerability in relation to humankind. Uneasy or tragic, irrational or obscure, my stories respond to a real world of suffering and transcendence: making unique, mixed media sculpture from organic materials such as wood and bone as a means of celebration, advocacy or commemoration; shifting to the written word as a way to enter emotional and numinous spaces of memory and dream. I want to be honest in negotiating the complex experiences that arise in relation to a time of climate emergency: there is anger, fear and sorrow, but also a drive to express magic, myth, fertility and renewal. In 2013 I received an MA with distinction in Art and Environment from Falmouth University and have since become a member of the Newlyn Society of Artists. My work has appeared in About Place Journal, Unpsychology and Earthlines magazine and in numerous exhibitions throughout the UK. I am connected to Anima Mundi Gallery in St Ives as an associate artist but am not represented by the gallery. I have sold work through them and in other shows but I feel my sculpture is missing quality representation online, and Artfinder has been highly recommended both for its tools and features and for the quality of its service and communication.
