Fauxtales: New works by Chuck Tingley: Art Exhibit

Opening Reception: Wednesday, October 27, 2010 5-8pm
On View: October 27 – November 27, 2010 is pleased to present Fauxtales, a mini-series by Buffalo artist, Chuck Tingley. The new body of work continues the artist's realistic approach into his vivid imagination. The exhibit will be his first show with and will be comprised of 7-9 small to medium pieces using the technique of drawing and collage on canvas. The opening reception of Fauxtales will be held at on Wednesday, October 27, 2010 from 5-8 pm. The exhibit will be on display through November 27, 2010 and is free and open to the public.

Chuck Tingley positions his figures in front of a collage of book print, letting the words dictate the story. In Fauxtales, Tingley explores the words in short stories and fairytales to manipulate the character’s physical appearance in order to transcend their reality. Through these new works, Tingley takes classic fairytales and stories and turns them into his own. The exhibition will be comprised of mixed media on canvas (pencil, paper, collage, canvas).

Born and raised in Buffalo, NY, Chuck Tingley is a promising young talent currently working towards his BFA in painting at Buffalo State College. Tingley has been gaining attention on the strength of his unique and emotionally profound style of artwork. Earlier this year, he had his first solo exhibition, Emotional Effusion, at 464 Gallery on Amherst St, NY.
