Provenance / History  
Story / Additional Info This painting is from a series of 10 works focusing on famous people from the 20th century. The series itself is a meditation on fame; talented and high achieving personalities from our recent history that have experienced an unusual aspect of modern life which has arisen from our modern mass media. These people found themselves transformed into ever present and easily recognized icons of the modern world; while given benefits few people experience, they were equally exposed to a negativity that few of us can imagine. The wooden supports the paintings are painted on are traditionally used for religious icons.

Gordon Carter - United Kingdom

Art Brokerage: Gordon Carter British-American Artist: Gordon Carter is a 32 year old British-American. Gordon Carter was born in Texas which is where he studied painting, made his first exhibitions and placed his work into many private collections; in 2000 he left the states and moved to Europe, Carter has lived and worked in England, Romania and Bulgaria. In Bulgaria he began to shift from what may be called his post-study period, to a more unique and self-confident phase of his work. In 2004 he made the acquaintance of Bogdan Aleksandrov, at which point they began a working partnership which has led both to develop and evolve a new Bulgarian school of contemporary painting. In 2006 Gordon Cartner began an on-line project called "the process", which essentially is the live streaming creation of his works over the Internet, an idea that fulfils several ambitions simultaneously: to take culture to the masses, to remove borders and allow the spectator the unique opportunity to engage directly with the artist; this project has been watched by people in over 200 countries to date. Gordon has won several top prizes for his works, including the National prize for young artists in 2006 Bulgaria, The National Landscape Prize 2007 (Bulgaria), and is nominated currently for the 2008 M-Tel prize for contemporary painting in Bulgaria. His paintings are also to be found in the collections of various museums and galleries, including the National Collection for Contemporary Art in Bulgaria, The International Cyril and Methodius Foundation Collection, and The Collection of the Presidency of Romania. Gordon Carter has also has the distinction of being the second person in the history of Bulgaria to be given citizenship for his contributions to Bulgarian society through Cultural means.
