Expanse by Chuck Mayfield
November 18, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
This November, a hidden little haven above the iconic Vintage Garage on Smith Street is totally transformed into an in-depth and expansive journey of self-discovery, reflection and light.
Blending fine art, graffiti, introspection and entrepreneurialism; Chuck Mayfield’s signature style employs a consistent play of light and luminescence as a symbol of illumination and revelation. Chuck’s work invites the viewer to see him as not only an artist, but furthermore; as a contributor and commentator on the human condition; and in doing so – to see themselves and their place as a part of this macrocosmic experience.
For years, Chuck has created large scale works in the public sphere and for private clients, but none have been so personally reflective as this. In its entirety, this exhibition is a study of the self, of reinvention, of acceptance, and a true introduction to the person behind the artist. Vulnerability is the challenge that Mayfield explores throughout this process; allowing the audience to see into his innermost beliefs and experiences – and by doing so, provoke a multi-layered cultural, creative, gender, and social exchange.
When everything becomes too overwhelming, Chuck has turned to art. This show is a demonstration of the ethos behind Chuck’s expansive practice; reaching far beyond derivative and typical . Through his years of practice, Chuck has honed his ability to see the sacred in the day to day life of the city – and has mastered how to capture it in a momentary flash onto canvas or wall that can be remembered, redefined, and reimagined by the public eye.
