Charlotte Andry Gibbs
"Union Jack (White)" Contemporary Flag Oil Paint 23k Gold Leaf Bold Striking Pop

2015

About the Item

"Union Jack (White)," 23 Karat Gold Leaf and Oil, 26 x 50 inches, is an elegant, Pop inspired painting of the British Union Jack flag. Other versions are available in red and gold ("Union Jack (Red), 26 x 50 Inches) as are 2 smaller versions ("Union Jack (Red), 8 1/2 x 17 Inches, $1200 and "Union Jack (Blue), 8 1/2 x 17 Inches, $1200). 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.

  • "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...

    By Sax Berlin

    Bardol Thodol literally means liberation through hearing and comes from The Tibetan Book of the Dead. Bardo is the transitional state between death & rebirth. Lovers of jazz and music in general will be all too aware of how one can be transported to this suspended state when listening to music. This state is expressed beautifully in the Tibetan Book of the Dead, and here we quote directly from it "remember the clear light, the pure clear white light...............Let go into the clear light, trust it, merge with it. It is your own true nature". Jazz Bardo, Heavens Gate...
