The Exhibition (360 Gallery)
Born in Montreal in 1957, Charles Carson has been devoting himself entirely to his art since 1983. He spent his early productive years living in South America from where he gained international recognition, acclaimed by experts and art historians for his unique technique which they named Carsonism.
Early in his career, the artist employed traditional techniques, gaining inspiration from his environment. His early figurative works left him unsatisfied and he started to lean towards a semi-figurative and extremely personal style of painting. This technique combined with his unique pictorial language rapidly affirmed themselves and his talent was revealed with each new creation.
The artist produces extraordinary works that exhibit sensitivity, depth and liveliness, as well as dynamism and variety of composition that characterize his work.
Carson’s artistic talent has garnered him many honors and distinctions. His work is sought by serious collectors around the world. At a recent auction held in Lausane Switzerland, three of hs paintings were featured alongside works by Jeff Koons, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Mark Rothko, Willem de Kooning and other well-known, sought-after artists. The Carson paintings solicited multiple bids and sold well above estimates.
