Rod Charlesworth

"Painting is just another way of keeping a diary." – Pablo Picasso

This online collection of painterly works represents numerous talents whose art practice continues to appear on our gallery walls.

The act of creating fine art is usually a solitary process; one of time spent gathering subject material, digesting the landscapes witnessed, sketched, photographed, traveled in & experienced.

The techniques used in the creative process are as diverse as these artists: a 15th C. method of layering oil paint and varnish, squeezing tubes of 21st C. acrylics onto a makeshift palette to blend the same colour as a glacial lake, taking flight with experienced pilots to get you close enough to capture dawn light reflecting off snow-covered mountain faces, extensive study of colour theory & using sketch books to create the perfect compositions to plot out how those hues will translate on canvas.

We are privileged to share the artistic visions created by these talented Canadian artists. Every day.

Rod Charlesworth

Rod Charlesworth's childhood fascination with drawing and painting has grown into a unique and primarily self-taught style, influenced by the surrealist movement in its early stages. He later discovered the Impressionist school that led him to experiment with colour and the physical qualities of paint.  The work of Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven has had a profound influence in Rod's style.

Rod Charlesworth studied art at Okanagan College where his ability to express the beauty of the western Canadian landscape became evident. Rod's work is now collected worldwide and he is committed to painting images that have a strong Canadian cultural influence, whether through his bold landscapes or his more recent whimsical images of children at play.
                        
ARTIST STATEMENT

“Painting becomes tedious when the ultimate goal of the painter is to recreate the external world. I've always felt that the painting exists only within its own borders, which allows the artist to say – What if I did this?"
