'ROUND ABOUT MIDNIGHT

PAINTINGS BY ANGUS CARTER
June 26-August 1, 2020

In January, due to the constant threat of climate change and increased nuclear proliferation, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists moved the Doomsday Clock to 100 seconds to midnight, the closest the world has been to metaphorical annihilation. Since then the world has experienced a global pandemic and worldwide shutdown, while America has begun dealing with its sad racial legacy all while becoming increasingly fractured amid political divisions. Navigating this new reality can be fraught and overwhelming. This series of work is my attempt to make sense of it all; to highlight the fears and anxieties, the social injustices and disparities. While somber at moments, this work should not be viewed through the lens of nihilistic defeatism but should be viewed as a reflection of where we were as a society, where we are now and where we can head if we chose to all focus on building a better world for each other.
