Production date
Multi-colour mixed media artwork using sand and primer depicting a woman exiting a supermarket. The woman is viewed from the front and wears a purple skirt and top and carries a bag in her left hand. Angular lines and geometric shapes form the supermarket frontage behind her. The artwork was made by first coating the paper with primer and then covering this with black sand from local Taranaki beaches. While the primer was still wet, lines and shapes were scratched into the sand to create the image. Colour was then selectively added over the top. The artwork is part of Carter's "Ladies in the Supermarket" series which was based on his observations of women coming in and out of a supermarket in Hawera in 1992.
