Disconnect: The Persistence of Isolation in Contemporary Existence

The presenter will focus on a series of paintings exploring the effects of isolation on the human experience, both in a specifically twenty-first century manner and in a more universal sense. Drawing inspiration from childhood experiences, Charity also finds source material in the work of artists such as Andrew Wyeth, Edward Hopper, and Alex Katz.  Utilizing both egg tempera and oil paint, she paints in a variety of styles to suggest that isolation can be both positive and negative, as well as an eternal human theme of particular current concern.
