This new body of work shows a continuation of the artist's realistic approach to artwork through his vivid imagination. This exhibit will be his first show with iPrintfromHome.com and will be comprised of 7-9 small to medium pieces using the technique of drawing and collage on canvas. The opening reception of Fauxtales will be held at iPrintfromHome.com on Wednesday, October 27, 2010 from 5-8 pm. The exhibit will be on display through November 27, 2010 and is free and open to the public.
In Fauxtales, Chuck Tingley explores the meaning behind the text in short stories and fairytales by manipulating the character’s physical features in order to transcend the reality of the narrative. Tingley positions his figures in front of a collage of book print, letting the words dictate the story. Through these new works, Tingley takes classic fairytales and stories and makes them his own. The exhibition will be comprised of mixed media on canvas (pencil, paper, collage, canvas).
Born and raised in Buffalo, NY, Chuck Tingley is a promising young talent currently working towards his BFA in painting at Buffalo State College. Tingley has been gaining attention on the strength of his unique and emotionally profound style of artwork. Earlier this year, he had his first solo exhibition, Emotional Effusion, at 464 Gallery on Amherst St, Buffalo, NY.
