Artist's Profile

Charley Harding

Statement

 

The world around us is a magical place, I really enjoy painting animals, romantic scenes, enchanted woodlands and scenes from fantasy animations like Watership Down, these all draw out my feelings and emotions expressing how I see the world around us. I feel an emotional connection with all my portraits and places, my portraits reflect my loving bonds with my family and friends, my art often interprets these connections making me feel happy and fulfilled. I spend a lot of time researching and contemplating my projects, making sketches and planning that finally concludes with painting, so most of my work takes 1 to 2 months depending on its size and complexity.

Impressionism has always inspired me, I find Van Gogh mastery fascinating especially his Starry Night and the figurative painter Francis Bacon tailors to my darker side with his Pope Innocent, chilling you to the bone, haunting and desperate. I also hold the work of John Lawrence in Watership Down with much affection. Even though my style can differ from that of these artists, they have helped my artworks reflect my romantic side and fears.
