About

Brighton's Ink_d Gallery is to exhibit a new series of work by Graham Carter, one of the UK's most celebrated contemporary printmakers Me, Marionette will feature Carter's most ambitious 3D works to date, alongside a range of original new artworks and limited edition prints The exhibition will present the debut screening of a new animation produced by Carter in collaboration with the Brighton-based animation studio Ticktockrobot”¨ A collaboration with Beyond The Bark puppet theatre will see a giant yeti puppet designed by the artist leading the UK's largest Children's Parade The 2012 Brighton Fringe Festival is to host the opening of award-winning illustrator Graham Carter's eagerly anticipated solo exhibition Me, Marionette, which opens at Ink-d Gallery, Brighton on the 4th May.”¨ ”¨Inspired by the story of Pinocchio, and the recent birth of his first child, Graham began contemplating his son's future and the world in which he may grow up, the influences surrounding him and the person he will become. ”¨â€˜I liked the idea that there might be alternative versions of Pinocchio out there and that each have a specific role in life and a destiny to fulfill. à‚ I've put myself in the role of Geppetto in creating these Marionettes and tried to inject elements of my own personality and interests in their make-up.'”¨ The exhibition will be bursting with the wondrous characters, landscapes and creatures that Graham Carter is famous for. His intricate worlds of Samurai and Yetis will be brought to life through some of his most ambitious original 3D pieces to date, along side prints and products which embrace the qualities that make Graham one of the UK's most collected and celebrated printmakers. Graham will be focusing his creativity on a group of 5 characters and exploring the environment in which they live. Visitors to the exhibition can step into the worlds of Explorers, Samurai, and space men. There will be a huge range of work available, starting from as little as £20, as Graham likes to ensure that there is always something for everyone. Me, Marionette has been the perfect project for Graham to fulfill a long awaited dream of seeing his work animated. ‘I have had many opportunities over the last few years to see my work animated but it has never been the right project with the right person. It was important to me that I could work with an animator who could really see my vision and when I met with Simon Armstrong from Ticktockrobot it clicked, ”¨and the animation for Me, Marionette was born' The Brighton-based animation agency Ticktockrobot has worked closely with Graham to create a magical journey of three characters which will be available to view virally in three parts on Carterworks.co.uk. This beautiful and elegant animation will be available to view in its full length at Ink_d Gallery for the duration of the show.
