Gilles Charest Paintings for 8 x 8

“The fruits of my imagination: I do not paint from real-life models.  My fruit has borrowed the figurative look of apples, pears, plums and cherries, but not the realism.  They provide a pretext to speak of men and women.  They are characters who take their lives for a walk down the paths for our day-to-day lives.

The 8 X 8 Martin Gallery exhibition represented a challenge. I rarely paint so small sizes. I wanted to paint as I usually do on large canvas. I produced Charest mini sizes as I looked in an inverted microscope.  Every 8 X 8 painting shows all details of a larger painting.”
