Samenvatting

Bryan Charnley: Art and Adversity combines biography and monograph. The painter's life defined his art, his art defined his life. James Charnley was witness to the adversities experienced by his twin and the evolution of his art. His book surveys the artist's childhood, adolescence and the madness that was to afflict his life and found consummate expression in the paintings. Augmented by interviews, journals, medical records, letters and diaries this book provides an informed and fascinating study of a turbulent life and the art this inspired. Bryan Charnley was a gifted artist who applied his painterly skills to describe the invisible: mental anguish is largely internalised. The works he created use metaphorical imagery to describe existential dilemmas. It was by such devices the artist intended to restore painting to its inceptive purpose and conviction. Bryan Charnley: Art and Adversity presents his paintings with all their colour, intensity and eloquence.

Recensie(s)

The extraordinary paintings and the life of the artist who produced them are described in revelatory detail in this book. Bryan Charnley is an exceptional talent, who now joins the pantheon of British visionary artists, such as Richard Dadd, Louis Wain, Mary Barnes and Nick Blinko,who were able to illustrate their suffering through their art. Henry Boxer, Art Dealer & Director of Raw Vision magazine.
