Art from the Alpine: CHARLESWORTH, BIRD, SVOB & BAVIN

In August, 2018, Canada House Gallery partnered with Canadian Mountain Holidays (CMH) to send artists RYAN BAVIN, CAMERON BIRD, ROD CHARLESWORTH, & MIKE SVOB to their Cariboos Lodge to experience the "place" en plein air. Painting en plein air lends an authenticity to landscape work. As an artist breathes in the air, feels the atmosphere, watches the light and shadows move across the scene they understand that place in a truly authentic way that informs their work. In conjunction with Banff Gallery Hop: Banff Gallery Hop is a project of the Banff Art & Culture Committee with support from Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity and Banff & Lake Louise Tourism.

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
