DescriptionThis painting features a sleepy village in the Stroud region of the Cotswolds, England. In the distance are the hazy Malvern Hills. The painting was created to demonstrate a new style that eventually was expressed in a commissioned work that spanned three large canvases (see www.carycharles.com for more about Stream Farm). The house at the centre belonged to the purchaser.This image is notable for being one of the first paintings in which geometry was fused with the English landscape by Cary, the intention being to create a pure and uplifting image that conveyed a sense of comfort and homeliness.
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.
