Who is KC Carter?

KC Carter, a 24-year-old abstract painter living in Southern Utah, got her start in the arts at a young age. As a kid, she would paint on her toddler-style easel set as her parents worked together owning a small business. This early passion led to her joining the school art club in the sixth grade and working hard to develop her skills as an artist throughout her young education. Attending Tuacahn High School for the Arts is where she gained experience and opportunities in the community and worked on developing her personal artistic style. She found a passion for designing abstract compositions using acrylic paint and collage, as well as other artistic passions like fashion and graphic design.

ARTist statement

A Statement about KC’s Artistic Practice

“The driving force that moves me to create my art is simply the desire to paint and play with material exploration. This may stem from my love of bright color, as yellow is most always an important player in my art, and pink is of secondary importance. I play with figure/ground relationships, skewing perception so that viewers have to work to decode the layers of a piece and the color associations. As an artist, I do not make my work with specific meaning in place. A piece may gain context through my use of text as a visual tool, and although I merely use words as shape to serve the composition, I recognize that because text has cultural meaning, context is inevitable through the use of language as a visual signifier. The relationship between globulous paint and the sharp and refined lines of text is fascinating to me, as is the juxtaposition between thick, generous paint and the two dimensional aspects of collage.“

Emphasis on Bright Color

As a non-verbal form of communication, KC tends to use bright colors to share her personality through her paintings.

Text Use

KC uses text fragments to add shape and meaning to her otherwise abstract designs. Through this use of text, she puts emphasis on her opinions and other major life points.
