Marty Epp-Carter was raised in the Midwest, lived in Boston and Provincetown for over twenty years, and has been living in South Carolina since 2006. She earned a BFA in painting from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design and an MFA in Printmaking from Clemson University. Epp-Carter is also a teacher and credits her continuously changing artwork to her ongoing experimentation and collaboration in the classroom.
A multi-disciplinary artist, Epp-Carter travels comfortably between traditional intaglio etching, woodcut and linocut relief prints, collage constructions, bookmaking, photography, sound art and found object sculpture. While the work may differ in media, the underlying theme remains the same: a desire to point the viewer toward irony and absurdity in contemporary culture while staying true to aesthetically formal considerations rooted in the decorative arts, expressionism and modernism.
Epp-Carter shows her work at the Schoolhouse Gallery in Provincetown, Massachusetts and Joel Wilkinson ART in Greenville, South Carolina. She is in many private and public collections both national and international.
