The Art of Charles Sovek

Most Recent | Exhibit Archive | "New Directions"

Exhibit overview: If variety is the spice of life, change, innovation and risk are what propels a painter's world to go around. For some time, now, I've been interested in welding together my two loves: pattern and form. A seemingly simple task to describe, few understand the astonishing complexity involved in such a marriage. Form is about our sense of touch and involves the capture of the weight, breath and dimension of the objects in a picture. Pattern entails seeing colors and shapes as interesting compositional arrangements. After a summer of experimentation I painted a series of works that come as close as I've gotten so far into this fascinatingly new visual terrain. The paintings in this display are a few sign posts showing some scenes along the way. I hope to explore more deeply into this wonderful world of "touch and see," and will be reporting back about my adventures along the way.
