Helena Fox Fine Art in Charleston, SC, Features Works by West Fraser

Helena Fox Fine Art, LLC in Charleston, SC, will present the exhibit, ø, featuring a dozen new paintings, on view from Nov. 4 - 28, 2011. A reception will be held on Nov. 4, from 5-8pm.

Distinguished Southern artist West Fraser has the soul of the South in his blood. A love of the land is apparent in his paintings that evoke a true and honest sense of place. A master of the nuances of light and nature, his work is comparable to the finest of American and European Impressionist of the past. Nationally recognized, Fraser creates a feeling of timelessness in his work that draws the viewers into his contemporary experience.

This exhibition grew out of Fraser’s passion for his landscape, the region his family has claimed as home since colonial times. The South Carolina and Georgia Lowcountry is a land of beauty, serenity, history and diversity, which keeps her inhabitants spellbound and seduces all who come to call it home. Since earliest memories, Fraser has explored her hidden places, both by water and by land. He is one with her flora and fauna. A keen observer might find him at work, knee deep in marsh mud with white ibises feeding all around him, running under his easel without a care. A “native son of the South” Fraser captures her soul in his paintings that make A Portrait of Place.
