Exceptional Abstract Colorist
Introducing Charles Meyers, a self-taught artist who is now termed a “Modern Colorist.” He began his career in painting as a teenager who had an impulse to bring life to the entirely white interiors. He has augmented his art education and technique at Rhode Island School of Design in glass blowing, stained glass construction, silk screening, wood and stone carving.
Meyers is an important emerging Artist: an abstract painter & colorist who has defined both living and commercial spaces in an entirely revolutionary manner.
The prevailing motif in his paintings throughout his career has been the relationship between geometric shapes in two dimensions while utilizing color to set his work apart.
He creates oil and acrylic on canvas works with a direct correlation among adjacent colors creating original canvases with a homogenized flow.
Meyers’ influences and inspiration include the works of Wassily Kandinsky, Josef Albers, Piet Mondrian and Frank Stella.
Meyers learned the basic tenets of color composition and juxtaposition working with renowned Rhode Island artist Herman Itchkawich.
Meyer’s stone sculpting works are in themselves extraordinary: and learned and perfected under the direction of sculptor Willie Reid.
His paintings are recognized worldwide and his work is hung in collections in Boca Raton, New York City, Long Island, New York State, Connecticut & Rhode Island. 2019 brings important personal and corporate Commissions to be announced in Winter.
The predominantly bright colors buoy his paintings and energize their surroundings with the vibrancy of the tones, creating a chiaroscurist affect. The challenge that drives his creative energy is to conceptualize the images into colors and designs on his canvases. He will plan each painting in his mind before picking up the brush, as to make sure the end product’s colors will never clash with one another. The resulting works are extraordinary combinations of real and imagined landscapes.
“My paintings are not meant to overwhelm the space in which they are being displayed… they are simply made to compliment space”
