Charlotte Andry Gibbs
"Viva la France!" Contemporary Pop Art Modern Flag Minimal 23k Gold Oil Painting

2015

$8,500

About

"Viva La France!," 23 Karat Gold Leaf and Oil on Canvas, 32 x 48 Inches, is inspired by the French flag, elegant and whimsical, however it can also be viewed as a pure geometric abstraction. Charlotte Gibbs’ paintings of flags, such iconic Pop cultural symbols as the Coca-Cola logo, and the stark geometric forms identified with the Bauhaus and Minimalism startle our expectations of such classic imagery with their incongruous execution in the very formal mediums of 23-karat gold leaf and oil. Consistently to be found in Gibbs’ sparkly and luxurious works is the artist’s keen knowledge of the history of art, her love of referencing it, and a subtle sense of humor. The flag series also encompasses oils that do not incorporate 23 karat gold leaf. Commissioned works in various sizes are also an option. “Gold brightens up the darkest days of the year at Beth Urdang Gallery, and Charlotte Andry Gibbs makes liberal use of it in her paintings. Gibbs focuses on iconography, using gold leaf and paint to re-create flags, corporate logos, and legendary works of art. While crafting a gold American flag, or a Coca-Cola or Chevrolet logo in gold feels like a too obvious jab at capitalism, all the works together draw intriguing formal connections.” Cate McQuaid, “The Boston Globe,” January 12, 2013 Charlotte Andry Gibbs attended Newcomb College and received a BFA in Painting from the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston in 1971. She has had 3 one-person exhibitions at the Beth Urdang Gallery and has been included in over 25 group shows, primarily in the New England area where the artist resides. Most recently Gibbs had the distinct honor of being awarded First Prize in the Roddy Compeition held at the Concord Center for Visual Arts, where she was singled out among the 540 submissions by 340 artists by Katherine French, the Director.
