BLACK AND WHITE PORTRAIT PAINTINGSBY CHARLES BIERK

Toronto-based painter Charles Bierk (facebook / twitter) whose black and white portraits (oil on canvas) verge on photo-realism while they explore the process of their own making. Charles begins with a photograph of a face which then becomes source material for a monolithic, monochromatic portrait. Working on a large scale and using a specific square-by-square method, Charles’ new work is as much about the subject of faces as it is the practice of painting.
