Known for his signature Canadian flag paintings, Charles Pachter investigates the changing nature of the self and the identity under contemporary conditions. His entire production, which incorporates painting, sculpture, design and architecture, navigates the boundaries between the historical and the personal.
By combining icons such as the Queen, the maple leaf, the barn or the iconic moose, Pachter brings to our attention how such symbols have become intuitive landmarks for us, impacting the different ways in which we see ourselves, and how we perceive the world around us.
By devising expressive gestures, Charles Carson is part of a generation of artists invigorating abstract painting today. He explores two distinct and complimentary approaches.
The first one is the Carsonism movement. It refers to the artist’s technique built around the application of swathes of colour constructed with lightly oblique touches sweep across the canvas with constant, regular movement. The artist is concerned with original application processes and finds non-classical methods to apply his subject vibrant colors.
The second one is the mosaic technique, based on the fragmentation of form and surface. In applying a unique mosaic effect to his painting formed by prominent superimpositions. His compositions explore space and highlight organizational structures. He uses a bare minimum of visual language to create his works and thus reflects about the power of painting as an action or reaction, for any given environment.
