1971

$2,934.48

About

A wonderful oil on panel modernist still life by the reclusive and rare Oxford artist Morris Chackas. The work depicts a red flower in a green vase and is painted on panel presented in box frame format. A stunning and highly captivating work. Signed and dated 1971 on the reverse. Artist: Morris Chackas (English, 1916-2000) Title: Red Flower in a Vase Medium: Oil on panel Size: 30 x 24 in (76 x 61 cm) including frame Condition: Very good Morris Chackas, known as Charlie, was born in London in 1916 and began to paint in earnest after he left the Army in 1945. Working from a studio on Woodstock Road, north Oxford, his influences were broad, ranging from African art and Japanese flower arrangements to Cézanne, Matisse, de Staël and William Scott. His aim was to play with objects in space, and create a relationship between space and colour in which there is a constant alternating current. Chackas's solo gallery shows were limited to the late 1960s and early ‘70s. His serene depictions of everyday objects like pitchers and vases intrigue with their stilted spatial arrangements. The artist once said that he was inspired by a cave drawing of a deer that existed in an “odd reality”; he succeeds in conjuring his own alternate plane, where a simple set of warm-colored teacups arranged on a spare brown table can captivate you. Chackas’s paintings are included in the art collections of Pembroke, Keble, Wolfson and St Hugh’s Colleges in Oxford. A posthumous exhibition of his work was held in 2009 at Optical Project, 1125 East 11th Street, Houston, Texas.
