Angus Carter is a painter, filmmaker, and photographer from the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. He received his Bachelor of Arts in photography in 2003. After a brief stint as professional photographer and lab technician, Angus grew frustrated with the commercial world of photography, abandoning the professional world for more artistic endeavors. For his solo show at Riverviews Artspace, Carter will be displaying his paintings, instead of his photography.

Chaotic forms and abstract figures occupy his colorful, tangled compositions that represents all his positive aspirations along with his fears, insecurities, and failures.
