BLACK AND WHITE PORTRAIT PAINTINGS BY CHARLES BIERK

Toronto-based painter Charles Bierk (facebook / twitter) whose black and white portraits (oil on canvas) verge on photo-realism while they explore the process of their own making. Charles begins with a photograph of a face which then becomes source material for a monolithic, monochromatic portrait. Working on a large scale and using a specific square-by-square method, Charles’ new work is as much about the subject of faces as it is the practice of painting.

New York - based Artist LJ Lindhurst

"I generally work from original photographs* of subjects that I find visually appealing. I like to explore the colors and textures of objects at a macro level. My paintings typically feature close-up views of tiny objects; I am particularly drawn to toys, candies, and other often-overlooked detritus of our popular culture. I find that when you isolate and magnify small details from these otherwise insignificant objects, they reveal more than just their hidden beauty; the mere act of enlarging these items to thousands of times their natural size and rendering the detail in paint creates a distinctly absurd sense of comedy". - LJ Lindhurst
