START COLLECTING: STATEMENT MAKING ART FROM THE CHARLES HAROLD COMPANY

by Marisa Marcantonio


Showing emerging artists along with a stable of talent,  Charles Harold Art Company is resource I seem to return to frequently when searching for large scale artwork. Started by Chuck Marksberry, the company fosters young talent and emerging artists, and is available through interior designers and galleries. You can make such an impact using single large piece of art over a sofa. Available as original works or giclee prints, their collection fills a need in the marketplace for punchy, graphic, well- composed abstract pieces. Here are some captivating examples.

An abstract expressionist work by Carol Hu 

I was drawn in by this piece instantly for its linear, graphic intensity. I now want it to hang over my teal velvet sofa, since it matches my color scheme. Untitled, by Marks is avalable as the original or giclee.

The composition, color palette and highly tactile surface used here gives this work a lot of appeal.

The splash of color and circular composition in Purple Rings also caught my attention.
