GALLERY SHOW — ATTENTION TO DETAIL

“I’m the most excited I’ve been about an exhibit in a really long time!”

That’s a pretty momentous statement coming from Robert Lange, one of the cultivators of Charleston’s contemporary art scene and owner of Robert Lange Studios.

Opening on February 3, Attention to Detail will bring some of the biggest names in the realm of photorealism to Charleston by highlighting time-oriented realists from around the country and Europe. Robert and his wife Megan know what goes into making a particularly impressive painting, both being educated in Fine Art and having 12 years of gallery ownership under their belts.

“So many of these artists have the ability to create dynamic compositions. It is the artists who have the ability to do so and create an exquisite surface to the paintings that really impresses me. In this exhibit I would say Tom Martin from London and our own RLS painter David Eichenberg are the two who have created masterpieces when it comes to surface,” explains Lange.

While all 30 pieces in Attention to Detail fall into the photorealism category, viewers will be delighted to see subject matter ranging from a mind-blowing painting of farmers market finds by Eric Wert to a politically driven vignette of a goldfish by Charleston local Erik Johnson.

“We only do a show of this caliber every few years.”

“The artists we have been able to connect with are some of the best of the best within their genre and most have never had their work in Charleston,” says Lange. With that being said, we suggest you don’t miss this.
