Jerrold S. Carton
Thank you for coming by to view my work,if you have comments please feel invited to post them here.Every artist loves an audience you know so your comments positive or negative show me that my art is being seen.
I received my B.F.A. degree in painting in 1970 from the Minneapolis College Of Art and Design. During my time there I was privileged to study with such notables as Roberto Matta , Christo, Kurt Sonderborg , Wayne Thibaud and George Segal.
I have been painting since age fourteen with many paintings in collections across the country and in foreign nations as well; additionally, I have worked in a variety of other mediums . A quantity of my work, including sculpture, has been exhibited and sold in galleries from New York to New Mexico for a number of years.
Today my focus is inclined more toward painting the “state of being” than it is toward representing the being in a concrete sense. I explore juxtaposition of color, form, contrast, motion, life and lifelessness in a representational style seeking to
express what are sometimes ethereal and abstract concepts. In addition my works are filled with a personal symbolism forged from what I perceive as universal but contemporary ideology with powerful and multifaceted implications. Reality is frequently not that which is reflecting light to our retina, but that which lies beneath that veneer; it is that substance which I seek to express in my art.
