Modern artist Nathan Carter creatively combines intricate wire work and bold colors in his latest sculptural series. All the material Carter uses in his sculptures are things he finds put out as trash on garbage day in the streets of Brooklyn.

Carter cleverly combines a playful edge with delicate materials in his sculptural pieces. Bright colors, raw materials and a sense of abstract are all prominent features in Carter's artwork. Carter often incorporates wires in his work to represent technology-based communication. His pieces, often 3D works, begin with upcycled pieces of metallic wire bent and wound into interesting and intersecting shapes. The shapes are then filled in with bright, bold and interesting colors. The end result are abstract sculptures that constantly keep your eye moving along the different wire paths.
