Charles Carson

Lives and works in Laurentides, Quebec, Canada

According to Jacqueline de Torres, president of the Galerie d’art le Prieuré in France, the the art of Charles Carson points to the missing link in the Encyclopedia of Contemporary Art. “Charles Carson, the undisputed master of color and the creator of Carsonism, takes us on a trip through a fascinating universe of multiple and varying dimensions. The artist has a remarkable facility for dematerializing forms, and transporting us into a world that is being passionately observed, allowing us to discover the endless subtleties of “Carsonism”.

Charles Carson
Lives and works in Laurentides, Quebec, Canada

Charles Carson concentrates on the essentials of structure, the purity of forms, the transparency and vividness of colors. He paints with complete assurance and focuses on different studies involving color and aesthetics. The work Charles Carson is doing can be clearly distinguished from that of a Riopelle as it takes us to the border lying between the abstract and the figurative (…) In so doing we are able to avoid the old quarrel that has so often arisen between them; indeed it might be said that, with Carson, reconciliation takes place. Carson, slicing like a blade to the core of the matter, launches himself onto each blank canvas via the rapid and nervous dance of his hand, using layered touches nearly always on the diagonal or in wide ellipses.
