Language of the Road: Meditations on Nature, Repair and Reverie
An internationally recognized artist, Charles A. Gick is a Professor of Art in the Department of Art and Design at Purdue University where he teaches painting, drawing, and installation art. He holds a MFA from Northwestern University and a BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute. As an interdisciplinary artist, he combines video, performance, painting photography and assemblage.
The Language of the Road suggests that a language emerges as wel travel along the internal and external pathways of our lives. This body of work blurs the lines between surrealism and abstraction. One is offered a place to explore and contemplate the quiet dialogues formed and the beauty found in the cerebral and physical gestures, marks, and stains that we leave behind in our everyday encounters with nature, repair and reverie.
