Lux Art Institute Welcomes Resident Artist Charles Moxon
January 1 – 2
Location: Encinitas, Lux Art Institute, 1550 South El Camino Real
Charles Moxon’s portraits are reminiscent of 17th-century Dutch Old Masters, to which he adds the observational detail and hyper-reality of contemporary photorealism. His use of lighting and fluid paint strokes calls to mind Vermeer, with a similar layering of transparent glaze to create depth. As described by Rankin’s Hunger Magazine, "Charles’ eye for detail, technique and life-like qualities are astonishing."
Recently, Moxon has begun painting actors and models as a way to explore the theme of performance, both on the stage and in our everyday lives. While artist-in-residence at Lux, Moxon plans to continue in this vein by painting a local actor, musician, surfer or other type of performer.
