In this body of work, Julon Pinkston departs from abstraction, using his unique process to  describe elements of nature in bloom. Gesture gives way to organic forms in this newest series. Pinkston introduces darker color palettes to counterbalance his signature vibrant compositions. His heavy application of acrylic accumulates into a thick impasto, fabricating works bordering on  sculpture. Asymmetries create a rhythmic dynamism in Pinkston’s paintings. The creeping  forms lure the viewer into a realm of impossible fauna.

In this body of work, Charles Clary continues to examine his relationship with the concept of death and the documentation of memory. The material contrast between Clary’s ornate vintage frames and the vibrant delicacy of the folded paper directly represents the artist’s desire to preserve life’s more fragile and challenging moments with as much note as the traditionally celebrated moments. Clary invites his audience to take the memories that were meant to break them and, quite literally, reframe them into something beautiful. 

About the Artists

He received his BFA in painting with honors from Middle Tennessee State University and his MFA in painting from the Savannah College of Art and Design.
