About the artist: Timothy Carter-East works his day job in the Broadripple Village area. He lives in Brown County where a studio located in their home is shared with his wife, Rebecca. The materials involved in his work are "found" mostly in Broadripple, Bloomington, Brown County.....and points between. The greeting card quotations "match up" with the designs after completion, and reside in several journals kept for years.
Artist Statement: Shifting quality of light, diversity of textures, and negative spaces, are the primary elements of my work. My art usually builds from the awareness of negative spaces, then gradually becomes....as paper, ink, and botanicals make their contributions. Art is a way for me to meet myself....one step at a time. I learn to trust myself. My focus is to take a creative step each day. My goal is to be larger today than yesterday......to become is really quite a sensation.
