Artwork description

Influenced by the works of European concrete and constructivist artists, John Carter’s printmaking is closely related to his process of developing the abstract wall objects for which he is best known.

Made in celebration of the 250th anniversary of the Royal Academy, this vibrant new print is part of the Transition theme which the artist has been working on since 2012. As Carter explains, it ‘refers to the transition, from left to right, of a channel of space which cuts into the body of the work, dividing it into two zones, one which points to the left and the other which points to the right. Two squares, one above the other, in various dimensions, are another feature of the theme.’

All proceeds from sales of this work go directly to support the non-profit-making areas of the Royal Academy, particularly the RA Schools.
