Wildbank Art for Acquisition or Lease

September 6, 2012

After decades of creating art for private and corporate collections out of his Jamesport Long Island studio, artist Charles Wildbank has shifted toward a greater exposure of his art into public spaces. These spaces range from hotel, corporate or hospital lobbies, yoga and fitness studios, restaurants, conference rooms, atriums, parks, cultural centers, terminals, and real estate stagings whichever can accommodate the large scale he offers. He hopes to accommodate large cities outside New York such as San Francisco, Los Angeles, Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, DC, and Miami over the next few years.

BEST FRIENDS!

March 8, 2012

Recent painting by Charles Wildbank is a commission for a collector in the Florida Keys. This canine painting “Best Friends” posed a challenge in that it depicts a pair of English Setters, one of which has long been deceased. It is a comfort that the two are reunited on canvas reminiscing of their glorious days together.

The scope of artist Charles Wildbank’s art commissions is never confined within any one genre. He has painted murals for the Queen Mary 2, portraits of celebrities, surreal seascapes, portraits, florals, still life and classical automobiles. His art can be viewed at his latest webpage http://wildbankfineart.com

A Small Treasure

March 8, 2012

Recently, a small treasure has resurfaced since the family moved out of their big Long Island home, The John Philip Sousa House in Sands Point. It is a miniature needlepoint portraying Charles Wildbank’s parents which Charles painted onto a needlepoint grid from a snapshot taken in the Bahamas during the 1960’s.

Though small this needlepoint turned out, the features have managed to make it past the confining limitations of needlepoint to a pleasing result showing its perplexing pre-digital pixelation. Hardly did Wildbank realize until later during the 1990’s that he would be artistically involved in the digital age in his now digital painting through Adobe Photoshop and Corel Painter.

Wildbank continues his portrait work to this day. He hopes to have a large exhibition of his super portraits this summer 2012. Please visit his latest webpages at http://wildbankfineart.com

The Value of Art: the art of value

Who would have adequately estimated the value of a Van Gogh painting at the moment of its creation, save alone the artist himself?  Most likely the artist has painted humbly from his indefinable soul and as a counterpart, a new patron would emerge mutually recognizing this greater vision expressed through the work of art.

Adam Katz is one of my patrons. Owner of Talon Air and Sea Charter from Long Island, Adam supports value and it runs across the board in every aspect of living. It is an exchange of both worlds, the artist and patron relationship, but in terms of the broader vision of serving others at large. Adam’s vision is to enhance the businessman’s travel needs incorporating them into a seamless experience. Art can only lend to the tone and ambience of the headquarters, resonating its positive energy among all concerned who enter.

It happened that because my photography expertise came handy, my images of his entire air and sea fleet created through large format giclee printing technology now adorn his corporation walls as well as some of my original oils as shown here.

The art throughout would perpetuate this inherent enduring value as tokens of a lifelong friendship. Though usually understood as being priceless, many would agree that art itself appreciates and continues to remain appreciated.

American Yogini Raw Juice Cleanse Program Photography by Charles Wildbank

 Wildbank, besides painting his creations or writing poetry, enjoys a life of raw food recipes, veggie juices, yoga and kayaking almost daily at American Yogini with its founder, Mary McGuire.

Much of his photography is featured on these internet pages promoting a healthy lifestyle to anyone who wishes to renew their lifeforce and energy. All that is needed is a little “time-out” for a few days out in the country here in the North Fork.

This is a comfortable retreat, called “WELCOME HOHM” situated within walking distance of the Hampton Jitney bus stop and just down the street by some nice beaches for swimming, kayaking or relaxation. Visitors have arrived to stay as a restorative stopover from faraway places as Japan, Belgium, Brasil, Puerto Rico, and France. Also for the prana hungry are some really scenic vineyards, grazing farms, and horse ranches for equestrian training as well.

Favorite of all, at the retreat, Wildbank concludes the day among the guests indulging in some quiet time together with a gentle and simple meditation exercise for that real cleanse, the quieting of the mind.
