The Concepts of Charlie Harney
This week i Thought i would write about one of our own artists, Charlie Harney and his Artistic concepts.
Harney is an artist unlike a lot of others his work is truly honest and he only paints based on a feeling and never the other way around.
His work at first only can be appreciated for it geometric and stylistic quality, however after Reading one of his descriptions one can see that Harneys work truly contains a high amount of substance and real feeling. Here is one of charlie’s concepts about the work featured “Factory”
“While working on this piece, Harney was looking into the industrial revolution of Great Britain. How fast it was for things to be constructed and the pollution and danger during that time. The black lines representing the connections of industry, The red and orange represent the flames of progress.”
One quickly sees there is more to his work, layers yet undefined. The work reveals its complexity and delves deep into the human condition.
Connection of life
“This work is an expression of the people that you meet in life, each block represents a person or an experience they have given you, the blocks connet to create a complete image. The backdrop represents the journey that this all plays out on.”
Charlies artistic exploration is not limited to our humble planet, he constantly paints work based on falling stars, planets and nebulae.
A tear in space
“This Drawing is based on the formation of black holes and nebulae which in turn create the planets. One could wonder due to the delay in light what of these plants even exist anymore.”
Harney would describe himself as a cubist however, as he work develops it is my belief that his work and personality fits far more within the expressionist genre.
Charlie has his first solo show booked for February 2017 at our February showcase
