Carter Flachbarth

Atlanta, GA
Carter Flachbarth was born in Atlanta, Georgia in 1996. He is a current BFA candidate at Savannah College of Art and Design in Atlanta. Carter is a painter that draws on his personal experiences in the 21st century to create his mixed media imagery. Carter objectively records his daily life through drawings and writings. Then, using an app he developed, the drawn experiences are collaged and manipulated into a single image. With this information, Carter flips the way we understand technology by allowing the app to be the creator and himself to be the tool. He creates this work because of his interest in the idea of the individual as it relates to a digital user experience and a curiosity to reconcile his own individuality and honesty through algorithmic processes. Carter has exhibited at various galleries across the southeast and his work has been featured in Wotisart? magazine from Manchester, England (2018); and you can find his work in the collection of Derrick Adams. Carter continues to live and work in Atlanta where he develops his practice.
