A Relaxing Weekend

Photorealism is a movement which began in the late 1960's, in which scenes are painted in a style closely resembling photographs. The subject matter is frequently banal and without particular interest; the true subject of a photorealist work is the way in which we interpret photographs and paintings in order to create an internal representation of the scene depicted.

Photo-realist still life painter based in New York City and born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Charles Bell created work distinguished by the fact that the subject matter is depicted in a scale as much as ten times life size. The colors are the clear and vibrant.

In his life time he created almost 200 works and wished to have his work reproduced and distributed as widely as possible for as long as possible.

    I posted about my weekend on my blog. Thanks for the email by the way.

    In regards to the art, that last painting is amazing. It looks so real! If you didn't tell me that it was a painting, I would have thought it was the real thing.
