Scale is the key for this artist Charles Wildbank who loves to fly and dive, saying, “I take flight for vision, and dive into the depths of the spirit.”

Memorial Day Weekend, Wildbank is opening his studio in Jamesport, NY to the public on Saturday and Sunday. Visitors will have the opportunity to view his towering seascapes, still life and portraits while visiting both his home and Studio set upon his landscape grounds.

At the main entrance, one is greeted by a massive Golden Wave painting, awash with abstract references to the highly decorative forms of Gustav Klimt. Encrusted with gold leaf, it floats colonies of geometric shapes, a looming tsunami in the making.

Nearby stands Luvin’ Wave resonating in its sensuously cosmic design, a luminous red wave teeming with yin yang summoning the dualities of the male and female, water and fire, chaos and calm.

Onlooking the surrounding visual poetry of nature stand these towering portraits in the open loft overhead, capturing the very subjects in the artist’s life, contemporary folk, children and grownups alike. In the next room, a bedroom, is a collection of sleeping portraits a fitting cure all for insomniacs.

In the next salon, reserved for dining, the walls have that effect of sweet bombardment of delectable desserts painted to whet one’s appetites:  ice cream, cake, petit four cakes swarming with picnic ants…

The house tour is followed by a glimpse into his adjacent studio a short step down and facing the Moon Garden outside the glass doors. There will be a display of small prints and giclees for the browsing.
