Welcome New Member
Charity Gipp was born in Oswego, New York, in 1984. She received a Bachelors of Fine Art in 2004 and a Masters in the Art of Teaching in 2006, from Oswego State University in New York. She currently teaches middle and primary school art at Oxford Academy. She has shown work at SUNY Oswego, SUNY Brockport, SUNY Albany, The Jericho Art Council in Bainbridge NY, and Six on the Square Gallery.
Her latest artwork is inspired by nature. These paintings focus on the often unseen and unnoticed creatures and plants that inhabit our surroundings. The colors and textures found in nature are reflected in the style used.
Charity uses tempera paint to build up individual layers of colors. Each colored layer is its own painting of the subject. After several layers are painted, she then washes the piece destroying most of the image, creating texture. After this she reconstructs the painting, leaving parts of the under layers exposed.
This artwork creates a parallel to nature because the viewer only sees a fraction of the whole picture. Just like the subjects in the paintings there are many unseen stages, which lead up to the final result. Charity's paintings show the complexities and beauty that are often overlooked around us.
