About the Artist:

Dan Charbonnet’s woven paintings of his newest series are rigid in their arbitrary rules. The taut strips of canvas, the hard edges of acrylic paint, the precise weave pattern. To watch him work is like watching an architect at the drafting table. Accidents are rare and unforgiven. But if the composition of the canvas seems stiff, it is balanced with bold, carefully orchestrated and often playful colors. Just as scent or taste may transport us to a moment in time from our past, so too does each color palette in Dan’s paintings. The vibrancy of the canvas matched with titles such as Sunset and The Mockingbird, Carnival Time, and Rhapsody in Green grant us an intimate view into Dan’s most treasured evocations.

Dan Charbonnet is a Louisiana native and graduate of the University of New Orleans class of 2000 where he received a Master of Fine Arts in Painting. His works are in museums and private collections across the country including the New Orleans Museum of Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art. Dan was a featured artist in Prospect.2 Triennial and is a cofounder of Good Children Gallery on St. Claude Avenue.
