Paintings by Alan Carter

"My work is concerned with the vibrant symbiotic relationship between people and their urban environment."

Painting by Alan CarterIn photo realistic style, Alan Carter captures a split second where past, present and a potential future are frozen. His views of urban life seek to capture the energy of city neighborhoods while also revealing how individuals are affected by architecture and living spaces.

Carter begins with many photographs taken of the same location from different angles and during different times of the day. The composition of his oil paintings are arranged so that existing architectural structures remain true to life though figures and weather conditions are often adjusted to create mood and psychological impact.
