Charles Robertson’s jewel-like encaustic paintings are the result of over 35 years of working and experimenting in this 2000 year-old medium. His choice of subject matter, usually landscapes of large open fields, convey a feeling of tranquility portrayed by a softness often associated with encaustic painting. He also does still lifes of single objects and abstracts he refers to as “glyphs” or “glyphics”. Charles’ work has been shown at major galleries throughout Long Island and New York.
Charles was born in St. Louis, Missouri and studied art at Southern Illinois University. With little or no available information on the technique of encaustic painting, he invented and developed his own processes to create art works in this ancient medium. Robertson has exhibited throughout the nation and is in numerous private collections.
