    Charles Wysocki

Artist Biography
The glory of America, with all its wit and wisdom, poetry, and emotion, sights and sensations, is captured in the glowing, soaring, stirring, charming work of Charles Wysocki, whose unique vision and scope grows and develops as the great nation does.

Born in Detroit in 1928, Charles Wysocki enjoyed an active and happy boyhood which seems to be reflected in his work. After studying at the Art Center School of Design in Los Angeles, he began a career as a commercial artist in Detroit. He soon abandoned it for the more independent life of freelancing. Returning to California, he married and established his home there.

Chuck and Elizabeth Wysocki have a great deal in common. They share an art background and the ethic of hard work. They have succeeded in capturing the rare sense of serenity that results from being content with the simple things of life, for which Wysocki gives his wife much of the credit. Vacations spent in New England have enhanced this feeling. Browsing through the historic countryside, collecting old brass and pewter chests and crocks, they envision an earlier, slower paced lifestyle in time with their own thinking and philosophy.

Such are the influences that have combined to develop Wysocki's personal style of painting and choice of subject matter. "I consider myself a painter of early American life," he says. "The people in my pictures are country folk, simple in manner and happy in their activities. If some naivete appears in my work, it's because it was planned that way and is undoubtedly a desire to live that way myself."

When his legion of loyal fans think of his art, they think of rolling, white cumulus clouds, as well as dark, angry, stormy skies. They think of bright winter snow scenes, and crisp views of autumn. They think of happy families, as well as lonely ladies in waiting - gazing out across the foamy, rocky waters for their seagoing mates.

All this and more is the work of Charles Wysocki, one of the truly unique artists in, and of, America today. "I love this country so much," he says. "I spent my childhood on the west side of Detroit in the Polish enclave. In our neighborhood, people still talked about the oppression they had suffered in the Old World. The freedom in America amazed them."

That freedom infuses the work of Charles Wysocki, who shared the longing of his family for a better life through the joys and heartaches of his images. His fine art prints and posters show a nation of splendor and aching beauty.

There's a sense of freedom, drama, and adventure in everything he does - from the simplest still life to the most complex landscape. But never does he lose the human content. "I want to explore the whole range of emotions," Charles Wysocki says. "I want drama and light, carefree times or a lonely, heartfelt memory."
