Chuck Webster Wished I Was A Giant 2015 oil on panel 72" x 108"
I had the chance to go up to LA the other day to see some galleries. My first stop was Zevitas Marcus in Culver City where I had the chance to view Chuck Webster's latest work. I have been following his progress over the past few years and this show did not disappoint.
I have rarely seen such large paintings have such intimacy. They are seductive but not in a cloying way. From near or far they suck you into their other worldliness. Straight forward paint handling with worked and reworked surfaces combine to make an indelible experience. Hats off to this new gallery for bringing such stellar work to the region.
