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

It happens every spring. A pair of robbins 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 barnswallow 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.

Confiskation<br>Charley Harper Serigraph
Charley Harper Serigraph

A raccoon can eat his weight in roastin' ears and the more he eats the more he weight, and the more he weighs...well you see what I mean. Watch for him on those warm summer nights when the kernel swells the husk and the gardener dreams of feasts forthcoming by moon-light, raccoon on the cob. Come morning, hear the gardener mutter, "Nothin' left but th'fodder." But, aw shucks, ain't he a cute little fritter?

Cool Cardinal
Charley Harper Serigraph

Zero, with a hundred percent probability of precipitation, is cool man, cool, even when you're wearing your red flannels. Air traffic's grounded, feeding station's socked in. You can't stuff your gizzard in a blizzard, so how do you survive? Hunker up and sit it out, rationing your reserves, moderating your metabolism. To put it another way, when there's snow on the roof, how do you keep a fire in the furnace? Cool it, man, cool it. Serigraph - 9 x 21 inches Image Size - 5 x 18 inches Limited Edition of 2000 Published by Frame House Gallery, Released 1974 Mint condition in original folder with all associated paperwork! - One of Charley's most popular and famous serigraphs.

Frog Eat Frog
Charley Harper Serigraph

It's a real jungle out there - frog eat frog. Happens all the time. If you're frognizant, you know that a bullfrog gobbles down anything smaller than himself that moves, including fellow frogs. No matter if it's a neighbor, niece or nephew - even his own kid. Gulp! Gone. So with every predatory palate in the pond and out of it eating high on the frog (everything from eggs to legs), what's the poor polliwog's prospect for survival? It froggles the mind. Serigraph - 18 x 18 inches Image size - 14 x 14 inches Limited Edition /2500 Published by Frame House Gallery Released 1978 Framed version is presented with Nielsen Black Metal Frame (117-21 Matte Black), 8 Ply Black Alphamat and UV filtering Conservation Clear glass.

Furred Feeder
Charley Harper Serigraph

Ask a bird lover how he keeps the squirrels off his feeder and you get a lot of expletives deleted. It's instant apoplexy, and understandably so. Americans buy half a million tons of sunflower seeds annually to fill their feeders, and spend the winter trying not to fill the birds with the bushy tails. Every time you outwit them, they retaliate with another creative compromise of the laws of physics. But in our hearts, we all agree: who would want to live in an unsquirreled world?
