Chuck Webster’s practice is a marriage of disparate traits: he paints whimsical forms that are the result of months of careful deliberation, and recreates recurring forms without loyalty to a single style. Webster says that he is drawn to “the just-off symmetry of things,” and this serves as a fitting description of his subjects. His works, which are often composed on panel or found paper, feature geometric and biomorphic forms, and have been described by critics as cartoon-like. Though abstract, Webster’s subjects often have real-world counterparts, like his childhood town or the act of whale watching. One critic described Webster’s images as “always realized without tape or rulers, giving his work personality, humor, and warmth.”
