These stunning works of art by Charles Patrick really are more than meets the eye.
At first glance, you see colorful, paper butterflies, right? But, as you pull away, you may see the actual shape of a butterfly or spiral or star or word. With an exacting precision, these mixed media pieces are carefully composed from cut outs of foreign currency, comic books or a children’s book (Alice in Wonderland!).
The shape may seem simplistic initially, but as the viewer is drawn in, you can see the beauty and complexity of each piece.
To see the art up close, contact the Samuel Owen Gallery in Greenwich or Nantucket or Blueprint in Dallas. Seeing Charles’ art is like watching little bits of paper take flight. It’s pretty magical and sometimes literally storybook!
