Chickasaw Nation News

Larry Carter is a Chickasaw citizen who discovered his passion for art a little later in life. He uses palette knives to create his masterpieces, a method he says adds an incredible amount of texture and depth; rich colors and contrasts are prominent in his work. Through his art, Larry says he’s seeing the world in a different way and is paying attention to things he might’ve once glossed over. Another hallmark of his work is that he likes to place hidden native images within his paintings as a way to get people to look closely at his work and see the possibilities.
