As reflected in his latest paintings, Charlie Bluett's painting 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.
He has always been entranced with the personal process that he
undertakes when creating his pieces. He is continually pushing the
elements of his process. This search for surfaces, color and form,
reflect the time and experiences which came to pass as he did so and
mirror in his creative output as a result of this keen and single minded
focus toward his art.
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
Bluett's pieces convey and allow the viewer to share in this highly
