chuck overton >>> july - september 2016
Living in the Bay Area my entire life has had a profound effect on the style and content of my work: the content being the natural beauty of the area and the style being greatly influenced by California painters like David Park, Richard Diebenkorn, James Weeks and Terry St. John.
I describe my paintings as an interplay between the formal elements of composition and a recognizable reference to the subject matter. Where some may see a patch of weeds, I see a compositional opportunity. I enjoy celebrating the mundane in nature by assigning it a major role in the composition. I hope to create fresh views of often seen vistas. I paint on location all around the Bay Area.
My work has been shown in many juried exhibitions throughout the Bay Area. I have sold to collectors in Phoenix, New Orleans, Sun Valley and all over California.
Chuck Overton is a graduate of the California College of Arts and Crafts.
