“Painting is the poetry of sight.” – Charles Alexander Couper

 

Charles Alexander Couper is a native of Portsmouth, NH in the United States, but has lived in Canada since 1987.  His studio home is in Bear River, Nova Scotia.

 

Charles received his initial training as a student of Fine Art at Vesper George School of Art in Boston, MA, and subsequently taught there for fifteen years. While attending classes as Vesper George during the winter, his summers were spent studying with Henry Hensche at the Cape Cod School of Art where principles of color perception and application as formulated by Charles Hawthorne were taught. 

 

Charles also took courses in the craft of painting at the Joseph Butera School of Art in Boston, MA and finally became a private student of the late, much esteemed Boston painter, Emest L. Major, who was a permanent resident painter for IPSWICH Studios.  Charles taught for three years at the Swain School of Design in New Bedford, MA, at the Attleboro Arts Museum in the 1960’s at the Capron Park location and conducted August Painting workshops in Bear River, Nova Scotia for nine years.

 

Still-life is Charles’ forte and major preoccupation. He attempts to widen its parameters through expanding his subject matter in to areas not frequently explored.  Charles believes that a truly valuable innovation is likely to emerge from painters steeped in tradition, believing that to go forward, one must know where one has been.

 

Charles recently received publication of a four-page review of his working procedures, painting, philosophy with color reproductions in International Pastel Artist magazine representing Canada.  He has also a three-page article with color reproductions in the book “The Best of Canadian Pastels.” A third publication, also in hardback, Studio Rally “Art and Craft of Nova Scotia” contains an interview with Charles, also with color reproductions.

 

Charles has instructed, exhibited and painted in cities from Mexico to Canada and promoted visual arts as universal language.
