Holding Venus



"For years Keith Carter's work had been glowing with astronomical imagery, an imagery of the stars - but stars pulled right down into East Texas, into backyards and dark bayous flickering with fireflies. Now those occasional images of the heavens in surprising places have resurfaced, but with even greater clarity and authority, for Carter has integrated his earth and sky imagery and their accompanying mythologies into a single new body of work. It is as if he has brought heaven and earth together."



John Wood
