‘Outside Memory’ by Local Artist, Charles Parson, on Display at Denver International Airport

Published on : Thursday, May 14, 2015

Denver International Airport CEO Kim DayDenver International Airport (DIA) proudly presents, “Outside Memory,” sketches and sculptures by Denver-based artist, Charles Parson, on display through July 2015 in the Terminal Gallery on Level 5, west.



Views of Colorado’s landscape form the majority of this series named, “Outside of Memory.” An ongoing theme for artist Charles Parson is an individual place on the vast horizon line of the Great West. Parson sketches the landscape as he sees it, using conventional “sight-observational drawing” as a point of departure. He takes these sketches on paper and incorporates them with acrylic and other industrial materials to create architectural sculptures that blend representation and abstraction.



“Local artist, Charles Parson, believes the horizon is something we all share, and the concept of the ‘New West’ has permeated his work for more than 30 years,” said Denver International Airport’s Art and Culture Manager, Chris Stevens. “For these reasons, we found his sketches and sculptures fitting to showcase in our airport, and we hope travelers will connect with his universal theme and the spirit of the ‘New West.’”




Artist’s Statement



My response to the expansive space of the West is typically represented with strong or implied horizon lines, interrupted by visual statements representing the place of the individual.



Integrated into all of these art forms is a calculated use of industrial materials. This becomes my visual vocabulary, asserting the poetry of society’s industrial, technological and architectural expressions as they relate to the organic world, helping create a definition of the nature of our times.



The search for a sense of place, so often present in my work, emanates from my own personal experiences. In process, my art is a personal statement; in final form it addresses universal themes of the contemporary human condition. My art is about connections. I express these connections in drawings, prints, wall constructions, sculptures and installations.
