Middlesex born John Carter attended Kingston College of Art 1959-63. Travelling scholarships to Europe and the United States followed and Carter from 1968 had a series of solo shows at the Redfern Gallery, London. His spare, abstract work won admirers and he continues to exhibit regularly including, in recent years, Sweden, Switzerland and Germany. Redfern gave him another solo show in 2010. He has taught widely over the years, including at the Royal College of Art and Chelsea College of Art, and was elected RA in sculpture in 2007. Arts Council holds examples of his work.
