The Art of Charles Kaufman.
Art review by Lou Simeone
Editor, Illustration Pages
"The work of artist Charles Kaufman isn't restricted by common, everyday thinking.
Charles paints any subject he wishes on any surface he desires. Unconventional
and bursting with imagination the subject matter of his paintings range from woman
and wine bottles to surrealistic toasters in the wild to wacky characters at organ factories.
Charles is fearless in his approach to art. He'll create his art on discarded soda
cans and carved wood as well as the traditional canvas. It's as if he has so many
ideas of things to paint; they explode on to any surface available.
However don't be fooled by the playfulness of his subject matter or his choice
of rustic materials on to which his art is applied. Charles Kaufman is very serious
about his work. He has two published books about his art with a third one soon to be
'released. On his website he offers an insightful view on how he layers paint on canvas.
He also provides a look at his beginning sketches along side the finished paintings
accompanied by brief explanations of his process.
Charles Kaufman possesses a true artist's spirit, innocent playfulness, the boldness
to experiment, and a unique view of the world, all applied with a distinctive style.
Wouldn't you agree that these are important qualities to have as an artist?"
