Description Original size: 40' x 32' inches. This painting is about relationships. There are three individuals, and the way they are connected is fascinating. Most obvious is the red figure with bleeding heart and shoulder and hand upon chin. It is waiting, confused and shocked as the purple 'eye of Horus' figure turns away to block communication, tight lipped. The interaction between these two symbolises a common stance found when two people are failing to relate. Below the red figure lies a dog, intimately connected to the red, supporting. Below the 'eye of Horus' figure though, there is fragmentation. This figure is split into two, one half turned away while the other below observes and even has an antennae to sense every move made. Thus, this figure represents the pretense of being distant whilst really engaged, a stance often played out during arguments. Painted during 2001, this biographical work, perhaps more than any other in this gallery, reveals the way the subconscious can filter into the creative process, expressing much that was not fully realised at the time.
Artist and photographer Cary Charles depicts sensations and memories in response to observed scenes, people and objects. His work is often characterised by vibrant colours, geometry and powerfully contrasting states of illumination. Subjects and styles evolve, but emphasis on sensation remains constant. Often 'metaphysical' dimensions emerge, intriguing and uplifting, commanding a lasting impression..
Cary has participated in several exhibitions, having first exhibited and sold during preview night at age 17. He has fulfilled many commissions. His vibrant and subjective works are particularly well suited to commissions.
