(NYC – FL) Featured Artist Spring 2016 Exhibition March – June, 2016 in Wynwood Opening Night Second Saturday, March 12, 2016. Meet the Artists Reception, 6-8pm
Gallery 212 Miami is delighted to welcome NY artist Charles Blake in exhibition and to the Miami market. Blake hails from a successful career in New York as VP Director of Design for over 12 years with NBC Television. He is a multi-disciplinary and award-winning artist who was instrumental in visible art projects including the NBC peacock logo which he created while working with advertising agency Chermayeff & Geismar in 1986.
Blake’s collection of works presented for exhibition at Gallery 212 Miami in Wynwood are all original, acrylic on canvas, with 3 dimensional elements. The artist also creates unique, large and dynamic sculptures. The artist is excited to enter the Miami market with an impressive resume of exhibitions, shows, awards and collectors. Themes demonstrate the artist’s view as ocean and wildlife conservationist with socio-political commentary and humor in every piece. Enjoy!
Treasure Coast Artist Charles Blake blends a fascinating mix of painting and sculptural elements to create a sense of surrealism and mystery in his paintings. Often elusive in their meanings, Blake’s paintings are collages of mixed media, primarily acrylic paint, steel, aluminum, wood and found objects that are set in custom wooden frames made by Blake.
Mr. Blake’s work has appeared in galleries and exhibitions in New York and Florida. He says: “The world does not exist without mystery, which has always been a catalyst for the creation of my art.”
More About the Artist and his work ::
“The dreamy, vaguely nostalgic paintings of Charles Blake create a longing in the viewer for something inarticulate and magical. With muted colors and figures, his paintings evoke an old-fashioned sensibility. His figures wear bathing suits from the early twentieth century and sport slicked hairstyles and tightly ruffled collars. In this midst of this formality, Blake imposes a surreal kind of logic, in which faces are identical or only partially formed and landscapes turn into metaphors for death, rebirth and loneliness. Blake states that his “creative imaginations combines the real with what is not.” Certainly, Blake mixes realities, dreams and wishes in his canvases, inspiring a kind of poetry through pure image. Charles Blake has exhibited his work both publicly and privately throughout New York and Florida.”
