The paintings and drawings of Charles Viera are inspired by the daily events that surround us all. Mr. Viera has the ability, through his work, to isolate a moment in time and allow the viewer to study these slices of the human condition for detail and subtle implications that go beyond the moment. Although trained in the academic principles, Viera chooses to work with very few references giving his figures and their surroundings an expressionistic quality that is uniquely his own.
I am very fortunate to have been able to be creative and allowed to be an artist for my entire life. The paintings on display are a small selection of my interests in my lifetime. My style has varied over the years and I will continue to experiment with paint in the future.There are many paintings to paint and so little time!
