About the Item

"ICONA" 23 Karat Gold Leaf and Oil on Wood 27 1/4 x 27 1/4 Inches (22 Inch Diameter Circular Panel) Charlotte Gibbs’ constructions and "flag," "star," and "text" paintings often reference the artist's interest in Pop art and sometimes incorporate 23 karat gold leaf in addition to oil paint, but not always. Beautifully painted and exquisitely executed, "ICONA" is an elegant and whimsical homage to one of America's most recognizable internationally known logos for the soft drink which has become synonymous with this country's widespread influence. It typifies the artists' humor and thoughtfulness, elevating it's enormous popularity (worthy of a gold leaf 'sign') while also provoking the examination of its extraordinary commercial success, i.e. coca-cola as literally 'liquid gold.' Gibbs is often commissioned to paint variations on her 'flags' and 'stars' paintings to customize scale, orientation, palette, and/or symbols of particular significance to the client. Cate McQuaid, “The Boston Globe,” January 12, 2013: “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.” 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 numerous 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.

  • "Canton Olive and Gold" Pop-Art Americana Star Contemporary Oil/ 23K Gold Leaf
    By Charlotte Andry Gibbs
    Located in Wellesley, MA
    Charlotte Gibbs’ "flag" and "star" paintings often reference the artist's interest in Pop art and sometimes incorporate 23 karat gold leaf in addition to oil paint, but not always. With its depiction of a detail of the graphically idealized stars of the American flag in gold leaf against an olive ground, "Canton Olive and Gold" is at once lovely and bold. Beautifully painted and exquisitely executed, these elegant works of rich color are sophisticated examples of Gibbs' ability to invoke whimsy while demanding serious attention, and the artist's simple natural wood double lattice frame is the perfect complement. "Canton Olive and Gold" 23 Karat Gold Leaf and Oil on Linen 30 x 42 Inches Also available are 2 very related works in this "Canton" series: "Starry Splendor" which is entirely of 23 karat gold leaf and is the same size (30 x 42 inches), and "Canton Major" which is 23 karat gold leaf and navy blue oil paint and is slightly larger (34 x 48 inches). Available as well is the "U.S. flag in Olive and Gold," a painting of the full American flag in 23 karat gold leaf and olive oil paint...

  • "Union Jack (Blue and Gold)" Pop British Flag 23k Gold Leaf/Oil Contemporary
    By Charlotte Andry Gibbs
    Located in Wellesley, MA
    Charlotte Gibbs’ "flag" and "star" paintings often reference the artist's interest in Pop art and sometimes incorporate 23 karat gold leaf in addition to oil paint, but not always. With its depiction of a graphically idealized British flag. "Union Jack (Blue and Gold) " is at once lovely and bold. Part of a series of 'flag' paintings (American, British, French, Japanese, Scottish) these elegant works of rich color are sophisticated examples of Gibbs' ability to both pay homage in a straightforward way to these international cultural symbols, as well as to the broader tradition of pure geometric abstraction in painting. They can be perceived on both levels. The artist's simple distressed slightly distressed white wood double lattice frame is the perfect complement. Also available are paintings of the 'Union Jack" in white and 23 karat gold leaf and bright, 'day-glo' like colors of blue, chartreuse and red, and red and gold. See also: "Sgt. Pepper Jack," "Union Jack Red and Gold," "Union Jack Navy and Gold," and "Union Jack White and Gold"), the Scottish flag...
