The mask maker sits, camouflaged among his wares. It is interesting to note that his own face is hidden, while he shows us many faces in different states of emotion. Is it just a picture of a craftsman and his wares, or does it make a comment on the essential isolation and self protective, secretive nature of the human heart and the disguises we give ourselves to present to the various worlds we inhabit?

The ink line drawing, "The Sculptor's Table" is a look at the interior of a sculptor's small studio. We see him in an introspective moment. The scene is ambiguous, as we can't really say if he is envisioning his next project, or perhaps lost in a moment of sadness. The outside window is close by, but he is contained in the small room which holds his work and his tools. SOLD
This drawing is on exhibit at the Sharpe Gallery in Kennebunkport. This ink line drawing of 2 women at an art show makes the two women, their attire, and their graceful poses part of the assembled art. Christopher Cart's facility with drawing and human figure gives the lines of this drawing a fluidity that allows us to envision the women's entire day, down to the perfume they undoubtedly are wearing. They are both part of the pattern of the room, and very much themselves.
