"Pacific Rim, Evening Sky"
Rod Charlesworth, "Pacific Rim, Evening Sky," oil on canvas, 30" x 30".
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. His work, whether bold landscapes or whimsical images of children at play, is now collected world-wide and he is more committed than ever to painting images that have a strong Canadian cultural influence.
