PEAK OIL PAINTINGS
CHARLES COOPER’S new work ‘Peak Oil Paintings’ at Annandale Galleries has produced a dramatic shift in his oeuvre. These new paintings seem literally to be ready to fly off the walls, perhaps due to their sail or wing-like configuration. There is an exultation and sense of freedom experienced by the viewer with these paintings that makes the act of looking an experience transcending the everyday viewing of artworks.
