In his recent body of paintings—dedicated to the memory of his late friend, the well respected artist, Al Taylor—Charles Yoder shares with us his forest utopia.

Yoder’s “Taylor-Made Series” serve as a tribute to their 25 year friendship. His human sized oil canvases ease the viewer into the paintings to privately experience the essence of the woods. These images are inspired by the beauty and complexity of the trees Yoder grew to know in his Northeastern childhood.

Intending for his tree filled canvases to set the stage, the Artist beckons us to become his willing participant. Within close proximity of Yoder’s trees and nature, the viewer may recount his or her personal experiences, or simply delight in the raw emotion that this Artist so passionately expresses with his wooded subjects.
