Welcome to Houston Carver Fine Art


“The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance. “  

Much of my work has focused on the inference of the human imprint on objects; representing them in still-lifes or the‘domestic landscapes’ we inhabit. I embrace the rich tradition of ‘vanitas’ painters, loving the surreptitious approach symbolism allows me to address universal experiences of hope, vanity, faith & loss through my own personal iconography. Expressing the effects of light on color and forms, as well as imparting varied surface textures are ever engaging process for me as a painter.

I strive for my work to be visually interesting while inspiring an introspective search for meaning.
I agree with Max Beckman who stated,
“In order to get something universal you must be very specific.”
