Charles Parson: Vistas of the Still and Centered Point
April 24 through June 7, 2015
Charles Parson’s dimensional drawings and sculptures are departures, in an abstracted form, that are a direct response to his sight observations and renderings that he develops almost daily.
In the realm of abstracting these observations, including the blending of actual objects with the mark-making, he celebrates the vast western horizon, that universally unites us all, while delicately presenting a sense of the fragile but important place of the individual, is represented by a small vertical shaft on this horizon.
Seeking to “frame what is already there” he presents the poetics of this interplay between the vertical and horizontal, the grandeur and permanence of the land with the ephemeral and fleeting sense the individual … and the poetry of that tension.
