Charley Harper

Charley Harper (1922-2007) was born and raised on a family farm in rural West Virginia, where his love of nature began at an early age. He was gifted with both keen powers of observation and the ability to paint a truly unique take on his subject matter. Best known for conveying maximum meaning with minimalist technique, he described his work by saying "...in a world of chaos, the picture is one small rectangle in which the artist can create an ordered universe."
