Charley Harper

There is more than meets the eye in a Charley Harper Serigraph. In his artwork, the first look may reveal an animal, bird, tree, some color...but then the unique linear patterns and shapes grab you with a special Harper message of some little drama in life taking place right before you. Charles Harper is probably the only wildlife artist in America who has never been compared to Audubon. And never will be. For his is wildlife art without the fuss and feathers - minimal realism, he calls it. "I don't try to put everything in; I try to leave everything out," he explains, adding impishly, "I never count the feathers in the wings; I just count the wings." Reared on a West Virginia farm he spent most of his life residing in Cincinnati. Charley sadly passed away in 2007. His artwork, his humor and his kind heart will be sorely missed by all whom he has met and touched. Charley Harper had made three personal appearances at The Frame Workshop.

Charley Harper Serigraph

Can you think of a better name for insects that walk on water? Our ancestors couldn't either, but your field guide calls them water striders. They hike around on the pond all their lives without even getting wet feet, and in shallow water on a sunny day their shadows sink like stones and tag along on the bottom. But who minds a wet shadow? If you had wide-spread, waxy feet that didn't break the surface film, you, too, could walk on water. And be famous for fifteen minutes. The popularity of "Jesus Bugs - Water Striders" issued in 1969 has encouraged Charley Harper to release a sister serigraph image in 2006. (The original Water Strider image retails for $1,200 - 1,600 on the secondary market.)

Bears and berries, bears and berries - go together like a horse and carriage, invite word play and lure the addicted punster down the primrose path.

Charley Harper Serigraph

It happens every spring. A pair of robins makes the front page by nesting somewhere you'd never believe. OK, so we live in a mobile society, say the sociologists, but a mobile home for birds? You'd expect a barn-swallow to populate your barn, and jenny to wrenovate your clothes- pin bag, but who'd be bird-brained enough to confiscate a skate? But wait. Consider this: put your home on wheels and if you can't get along with the neighbors - migrate. Serigraph - 14 x 17 inches Image Size - 10 x 13 inches Available as a framed item only...
