Thayer Carter's artwork reflects a quiet and profound aesthetic by creating signature imagery for over 40 years in New Mexico. He uniquely captures the essence of place and the spirit of NM through landscapes, villagescapes, architectural details and the inherent patterns found in the natural and man-made world. A humble and relentless professional artist, Carter's work is deserving of recognition as a resident artist of this state, with family roots in New Mexico dating back to the early 1920's.

He is a living legend, carrying generations of artistic talent and commitment to excellence. As an active Santa Fe artist for over 40 years, with a range of exceptional talents in woodcut printmaking, watercolor, oil and acrylic landscape paintings, as a woodworker, furniture maker and carpenter. This exhibition, Thayer Carter : A Journey in Woodcuts is a glimpse through images into his world of interest, travel and talent.

Biography

 

Thayer Carter is a painter and printmaker whose work has been inspired by over 30 years of travels throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Europe, Asia and South America. His pictures, on paper and canvas, are strongly influenced by early American Modernists, ranging from Lyonel Feininger and Charles Sheeler to Lynd Ward and Rockwell Kent. The landscapes that attract him come from both the natural and built environment, and are as diverse in their subject matter as the villagescapes of northern New Mexico, the jungles of Asia and the Carribean, scenes of urban Europe and the coastline of the North Atlantic.

 

Carter attended the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and The Art Students League in New York. His work has been exhibited in New York, Boston, Seattle, Santa Fe and Cuenca, Ecuador, with work published in the United States and Europe. Carter was Head Fabricator for the Exhibitions Division of the Museum of New Mexico for 18 years. He currently lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
