Natural beauty, stunning landscape, by local artists


Charles H. Hollinger

Charles H. Hollinger, of Washington, Connecticut, is an avid outdoorsman whose love of surf fishing has inspired him to capture light in his paintings and drawings across the full spectrum that he has experienced while pursuing his sport during prime fishing hours at dawn, dusk and late evening. “This practice has given me the opportunity to see some of the most awe-inspiring sunups, sundowns and all the hours of light preceding them,” he said. “I try to bring forth my understanding and, more importantly, my love of light through the relationship of warm versus cool colors, light versus shadow, and contrasting shapes.”
Charles completed his  undergraduate degree at St. Lawrence University and will be receiving his Masters in Fine Arts from Western Connecticut State University in June of 2016. He paints in oils on canvas and board with smooth brush strokes, using atmospheric perspective and muted colors to draw viewers into a motionless and tranquil landscape. Recently his artistic exploration has expanded to works with graphite on paper.
