Born in 1958, artist Robert Charon grew up in the metro Phoenix area of Arizona. He began to cultivate his creative mind at a very early age. In high school, Charon developed a love of watercolors, and continued to pursue his education through art scholarships to colleges in both Arizona and Utah. During a break in his undergraduate years, he spent two years in Taiwan where he acquired an impassioned fondness of oriental tradition and art. Charon draws from his experiences in Taiwan and the influence of eastern culture for inspiration as an artist.
The splendor of nature and wonder of the world itself leaves an impression that long outlasts any one artistic movement. Charon is passionate about depicting the worth in brilliant subtleties of everyday life. He does not rely on specific movements or periods in art history to drive his own unique style, but does appreciate the fluidity of present day watercolorists. Charon’s work can best be described as an all-embracing balance of converse yet connected imagery. It is an anecdote of light and dark; from translucent to opaque; from abstract to realism. His style is diverse and captures life’s nuances in both subtle and dramatic ways. Whether a graceful landscape or a resonant color field abstract, Charon’s work evokes a feeling of peace and tranquility. The depth of his paintings calls viewers to reflection; an uninterrupted moment kept for inner thoughts and deeper meanings.
Robert’s work can be found in corporate and private collections around the world. His work can be seen in galleries on both the west and east coast of the United States.
