Rosie Carter lives in the Four Corners region of the southwest, a place with a history of staying put. Where people are connected to the landscape as if it were another limb. Native Americans with their homelands, pioneers with their homesteads, farmers and ranchers with their fields and range. Her work is inspired by these intimate relationships – this entwining of person and place, landscape and outlook, existence and invention.
A self-taught artist, Carter grew up in a family of artists and entrepreneurs who placed a high value on creativity and innovation. A writer as well as a musician, Carter has been approaching these entwining ideas of landscape and outlook from a slew of angles over the years. The concepts she worked with in written pieces, recorded stories, soundtracks, and endless photographs have ultimately been pulled together to create her current dimensional work.
