Charlie Bluett's first publicly exhibited work was selected and hung in the Royal Academy of Arts in Piccadilly, London. This was followed by three highly successful solo exhibitions in London at Blains, The Bloxham Gallery & The Smith Street Gallery, attracting private collectors worldwide. As reflected in his latest paintings, his output has been driven by his overriding passion for the enhancement of the process, the flow and ebb of life, and the light and color of the everyday. Bluett started painting in earnest in the early 90's. He has always been entranced with the personal process that he undertakes when creating his pieces. He is continually pushing the elements of his process. This search for surfaces, color and form, reflect the time and experiences and mirror in his creative output as a result of this keen and single minded focus toward his art.
His works contain elements that pay homage to the techniques of the Old Masters, blended with abstract expressionism and the color-field painting of the contemporary names of our time. His contemporary abstract color-field paintings focus on the contours, tones, colors and balance in nature. The attempt to capture the essence of the natural world and the elements that combine to create it. The changing surfaces, vibrant and ethereal color use, and the consistent subtle movement of form and mind within the works is considered and deliberate, and yet fluid, challenging and at peace within its composition.
Charlie Bluett currently works from his studio in Vermont, part of the beautiful & inspirational Northeast of the USA.
