Harris Harvey Gallery is pleased to present Charles Emerson, Everything Changes, Every Thing Dreams. Emerson is a Pacific Northwest painter who creates richly hued abstract paintings that describe ethereal and atmospheric spaces. Embracing color as the foundation of his work, Emerson builds his compositions by applying layers of subtly varied tones that shift with light. His paintings contain terrestrial forms, celestial shapes, and painterly marks, each depicting an emotive microcosm with every varying palette. His paintings are reflections on personal experiences and an engagement with the concept that “nothing ever stays the same.” Emerson uses painting both as a visual diary—recording places, significant moments, and interpersonal interactions—as well as a part of a spiritual search where one can transcend the here and now.
