Charlie Bluett's first publicly hung work was selected and hung in the Royal Academy of Arts in Piccadilly, London. This was followed by three highly successful solo exhibitions at Blains, The Bloxham Gallery & The Smith Street Gallery, attracting private collectors worldwide.
As reflected in his latest paintings, his output has been driven by his overriding passion for the enhancement of the process, and the flow and ebb of life, and the light and color of the everyday.
His works contain elements that pay homage to the techniques and the deft touches of the Old Masters, blended with abstract expressionism and the colorfield painting of the contemporary names of our time.
His contemporary abstract colorfield paintings focus on the natural scenes & objects we are exposed to within the Earths vast and varied outdoor environments. Contours, tones, colors & natures balance feature heavily in his paintings, and capture the very essence of the natural world around us and the elements that combine to create it.
The changing surfaces, vibrant and ethereal color use, and the consistent subtle movement of form and mind within the works, is considered and yet fluid, challenging and yet totally at peace within itself.
Bluett's pieces convey and allow the viewer to share in this highly personal journey
