Songs and Dances by Chuck Lathrop

November 3 - November 25, 2017

Reception: November 3, 2017; 6 - 9pm

Songs and Dances is my first show in Texas. The four large un-stretched canvases were

created using the principle of automatic mark-making which I have utilized in most of

my work for over 20 years. In this method of working I try to get out of my own way by

eliminating critical thinking while painting. The paintings in Songs and Dances are titled

with the names of major and minor Shakespearean characters some chosen by chance

and others suggested by the paintings.
