Fresh A.I.R. Gallery presents

My Blessing, My Curse

Charles Wince

October 5 – November 18, 2016

 

Fresh A.I.R. Gallery cordially invites you to My Blessing, My Curse by legendary Columbus artist Charles Wince. Please join us for an opening reception on Wednesday, October 5, 2016 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. My Blessing, My Curse will be on view at the Fresh A.I.R. Gallery through November 18, when a closing talk from the artist will be held from 3:00 - 4:00 p.m.

 

Through his vibrant, provocative paintings, Wince channels hyperactivity into hyper-focus and visual expression. His paintings are described as provocative with strong narratives that sometimes involve social commentary and self-introspection. Critics have identified anxiety, sexism, and consumerism as prominent themes in his work, also suggesting that his paintings offer a darkly humorous twist on familiar imagery.

 

Wince states “As much as my paintings involve sociopolitical critique and religious critiques and narratives, they also reflect my frustrations with learning disabilities, and the accompanying bouts of depression. Visually, they are influenced by my fiery childhood trauma. I have come to realize that my maladies are the key components in what make me who I am. They are my curse, but they are also my blessing.”

 

Fresh A.I.R. Gallery (Artists in Recovery) met a milestone in 2014 by celebrating 10 years as a nonprofit art gallery with a mission to exhibit the works of individuals affected by mental illness and/or substance use disorders. By bringing focus to the artistic vision, we educate the community and work to break down the stigma of these conditions.
