ROD CHARLESWORTH - Painted Places

Rugged and raw landscapes from across Canada continue to inspire Rod Charlesworth, a Canada House Gallery artist for over 30 years. Working with oil on canvas utilizing his hands, fingers, brush and palette knife Charlesworth’s pieces are rich, vibrant and luscious.

“My approach to oil painting has usually been a very direct, wet on wet technique, that in the end creates a varied textural surface, small abstractions that eventually will tie the composition together. I love to see people walk up close to the piece and view the smaller components.”

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?"

Born on December 19, 1955 in Terrace, BC. Nationality is Canadian
