Rob & Nick Carter Biography
Rob and Nick Carter work together to create what they describe as ‘images without cameras and paintings without brushes’, their stunning abstract images result from their method of working, the image is gradually created in complete darkness by applying increments of light directly to sensitised paper. Each artwork is the result of hours of painstaking labour and is entirely unique. The vibrant, high gloss colours and pop sensibility provoke an immediate visual response from the viewer - a roller coaster ride for the eye and perception.
Private collectors include Elton John, David and Victoria Beckham, Simon Fuller, Philip Treacy and Mathew Williamson, and their work is in the corporate collections of many large companies including The Virgin Group, Sainsbury’s PLC, Absolut Vodka and Reuters.
Rob Carter also produces solo works using long exposures, his subjects range from the bright lights of Las Vegas, Tokyo and Hong Kong to the Tulip Fields of Holland and seascapes around the world.
