  • BROKEN BEAUTY

    10 November 2016

    “For as long as I can remember, I have been drawn to both color and texture - especially as they are found in the natural world. Red iron oxide, the color of rust - and what gives our blood its hue - is one of my favorite colors, and is found in all my pieces.

    To me, some of the most interesting textures are found in the resultant marks of nature’s wearing away. Crevices, canyons and seashores all attest to the give and take of Mother Earth.

    My paintings are created in much the same way; in the layering of the acrylic paint and gels, continual re-working, and sometimes violent mark making, they become metaphors for our own lives. Imperfection trumps perfection, chaos is organized and peace prevails.”

  • INTO THE WILD

    7 April 2016

    Delve into the dense, lush wild of Dore’s inner intricate world. Explore nature in a completely unique way by immersing yourself into expressive qualities of color and his somewhat whimsical narrative. Each painting manages to convey a serene moment in time – a tranquil calm. His belief in an enchanted inner vision leads to the creation of highly imaginative paintings, inspiring introspection and thought on the part of the viewer.

  • Awakened Soul

    4 February 2016

    Awakened Soul is a story about how the simplicity of Mother Earth has given me a shift of needing all things to seeing all things. Living a life with overwhelming gratitude of the gifts that are given to me every day. In my work you will find the celebration of Mother Earth and see how it gives an opportunity in every moment to be present. I have captured moments in time that are filled with stillness, magic and peace. I am guided by her, letting life unfold in front of me.

  • Helping Others Through Art: By Tesseract Student Artists

    5 December 2015

    This is Calvin Charles Gallery & Tesseract’s second year donating artwork and gallery space to raise money and awareness for Tumbleweed, an organization that offers resources and services to homeless youth in our area. This year the money earned by the sale of each work of art will buy shoes for those in need.  Due to the need for shoes, the idiom “don’t judge until you’ve walked a mile in someone’s shoes” became the driving idea behind our exhibition.
