Artist: Chuck Connelly
Chuck Connelly: My America
Connelly’s exhibition at The Warhol, his long overdue first solo museum show, will include works from the late 1970s through to the present day. It will reveal the artist’s unique tragicomic approach to figurative painting and his ability to interweave grand art historical themes with contemporary social commentary and personal narratives.
As a prodigious painter with a passion for his art, he has amassed a vast collection of canvases. Connelly’s subjects have varied widely from religious imagery to cosmic visions, landscapes, portraits, domestic interiors, and Victorian homes from his neighborhood in East Oak Lane, Philadelphia. Critics have compared his work to Soutine and Van Gogh, but his urban landscapes also conjure the grittiness of the American realist George Bellows. Stepping away from this tradition, Connelly infuses an element of the surreal into his work as his figures seem to portray untold narratives and maintain an otherworldly dimension.
