Charlie Barr - New Paintings
Charlie Barr
March 9, 2011 - April 11, 2011

Charlie Barr is a Northwest landscape artist working with a unique  mixed
media blend of acrylic and cement on panel. These contemporary  landscape
paintings are meant to set a mood or evoke emotion and often leave  the
viewer with a sense of remembrance and stimulated senses.

Barr's goal  is to create paintings ranging from representational to abstract with a
focus  on color, contrast, and balance. He doesn't want the quality of the painting  to
diminish whether viewed from ten feet or eight inches and believes it is  crucial to use
texture and creative brush techniques to hold a viewers  attention up close and have
a strong composition to hold the viewers interest  at a greater distance. Every inch of
the painted surface has movement without  sacrificing the overall composition.
