The Silent Guitar: Paintings by Sharif Carter
On view through October 31, 2021
Borrego Art Institute
Borrego Springs, California

Violating traditional methods, Sharif Carter paints with an unusual technique of combining opaque watercolors with oil mediums on handcrafted wood panels that produce vivid imagery and mesmerizing fluidity as if subjects dance across the canvas. The loose brushstrokes and abstract guitars represent Sharif’s love of music and his defiance to follow traditional rules both in life and his painting technique.
