Houska Gallery: Thursday, 15 September 2016

Craig Carlisle
September 15 - October 15, 2016
Opening Reception September 15th 5-8PM

We are pleased to announce Craig Carlisle will have his solo exhibition at the Houska Gallery. The
exhibition will run from September 15 through October 15, 2016. The opening reception will be held at Houska Gallery located at 4728 McPherson Ave on September 15 from 5-8 PM.

The idea of meditation and contemplation play a major role in the paintings of Craig Carlisle. His
paintings articulate indelible images which evoke an emotional response from the viewer. The series of Big Heads are generally large canvas’s deliberately created on a scale that will empower a room. The Big Head is typically anonymous and always genderless. Carlisle opts to place the focus on the expression, eliminating the judgement of personal style we create for ourselves with hair or fashion.
Carlisle’s flower and garden paintings equally match that of the Big Head vibrancy, intensity, color, form and emotional depth. The perspective the artist uses allows the viewer to feel as if they are standing within the space. All Carlisle’s imagery comes from his imagination with the intent of creating a connection with the viewer.
