Suspended from the ceiling, the sculptural work playfully combines delicate linear elements and a multitude of suspended whimsical, soft abstract shapes. This new body of works focuses on a formal language of shapes and symbols that allude to feminine anatomy, floral forms and colors but with dangerously sharp edges that serve as a self-defense mechanism. Continuing Nathan Carter’s characteristic DIY aesthetic, the cut-outs are hand painted and dangle mobile-like from fine metal wires.
