Arthur Carter, who has spent much of his life in the worlds of finance and journalism, is an artist who has created a range of geometric abstractions and whose Orthogonal series will certainly have an important place in the history of sculpture. “Only squares and circles, lines and ellipses,” he says, “can elegantly explain and simplify the complex meaning of life.” In this comprehensive volume on his work, journalist Frank Rich contributes a biographical foreword and critic Robert C. Morgan describes Carter’s achievements as an artist, carefully analyzing his place in the tradition of modern abstract art and the recent history of sculpture.
