Carter Mull (born 1977 in Atlanta, Georgia) is an American artist working in Los Angeles. Mull took his BFA in Painting from Rhode Island School of Design in 2000 and MFA from California Institute of the Arts in 2006. He creates pictures through a process of rephotographing and altering existing images.
Mull’s work has been exhibited widely, most recently at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, Presentation House, Vancouver, Domaine Departement de Chamarande, Paris, Marc Foxx, Los Angeles and Gagosian Gallery, New York. His project intertwines multiple mediums to question the media that constructs our conception of the world. In turn, the practice recomposes an understanding of our shared, social imagination.
His work is in the collections of the Walker Art Center, the UCLA Hammer Museum, the Orange County Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, The Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the UCLA Hammer Museum, The Getty Research Institute and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.
