CHARLES PACHTER "MOOSE LAKE: PAS DE DEUX"
Charles Pachter is one of the most collected and cherished Canadian artists. His iconic, uplifting and patriotic images have independently earned their place in the nation's museums. For the uninitiated his work is accessible and beloved (notably his amazing hockey mural at Toronto's College Street subway station). While Pachter’s work shares some characteristics with Jim Dine, David Hockney and even Andy Warhol, his style is resoundingly charming, singular and uniquely Canadian.
Charles Pachter’s graphic and confident artworks have confirmed his position in the canon of 20th century Canadian art. Pachter’s most cherished images take archetypes of Canadiana -- the barn, Queen Elizabeth, and the moose, for example -- and reinterpret them with an original palette (and often through a humorous lens). Pachter’s graphics are an ideal choice for starting a collection of Canadian art.
