Works by Martin Charlot and Raoul De la Sota
Turtle Sky - Raoul De la Sota
Witches Brew - Martin Charlot
Check out our opening night videos on YouTube:
Martin Charlot, son of the renowned artist and muralist, Jean Charlot, is an oil painter and a muralist working in the fresco tradition. Taught by his father, Martin’s careful draftsmanship and skillful color expresses a humanist spirituality grounded in earthiness. His work speaks to life reborn; the life of earth and of humanity. His love of flora and fauna is exhibited in his lushfully surreal landscapes, meant to be lingered over like an intensely flavored feast.
Raoul De la Sota’s work reflects his beliefs in ancient cultures and civilizations as they relate to cosmic imagery. Mystical and dreamy, De la Sota’s work points our eyes skyward in search of his Mayan nebulas and constellations. De la Sota’s imaginative colors reinvigorates and deepens our interest in the universe as cosmic creator. At the same time, he deals with ecological matters in terms of ancient ideas as well as contemporary warnings.
