Charles Spitzack is a Midwest artist and entrepreneur based out of Seattle WA. Taking a multifaceted approach to survival, Spitzack is the founder of The New Number Two, a small business operating in the Capitol Hill neighborhood offering a wide range of hands-on services. Though he graduated from Cornish College of Art in 2010 with a focus in Print Arts & Drawing, Spitzack prefers to be known as a self-realized individual.

The majority of Spitzack’s work resolves itself in the form of a print. Dedicated to dissolving barriers in commitment to the communal whole, Spitzack has found printmaking to be an excellent way to express these ideas in both subject matter and process. Having pledged himself to a life of mystery at the age of 9, he wonders how long he will be able to hold on before becoming a Jehovah’s Witness.

And here’s what Charles has to say regarding his impressive show at Fresh Flours!

Within the chaotic, sporadic, and frantic modern world we live in, constantly entertained and occupied, as TV speeds up to maintain the attention of a more and more demanding audience who continues to look for more and more distractions as we ourselves speed up into a perpetual tailspin, my ideas surface in the same disjointed manner.

Printmaking is a revolutionary medium, allowing for multiples and a wider distribution of work at a lower economic cost, obtaining a greater audience.  The imagery within my work also holds to these ideals, and attempts to dissolve barriers by remaining ambiguous.

Growing up in a small town in Wisconsin, I traveled to the western US extensively on family vacations, learning to appreciate this country’s great beauty. Then, in 2003, I discovered nature photography when I spent a summer in the mountains of Colorado. Since then, my love for the art has increased exponentially.

Now, nature photography is my passion and much of my focus gets put into it. My goal is solely to show others what beauty I have been lucky enough to witness, with the end result being that people care more for where they live.

When shooting, I capture the best data with my pixels as I can through careful technique.  My photographs always maintain integrity and have not been edited in a way that adds or subtracts subject matter. All images of wildlife in my galleries are truly wild; not captive in zoos or game farms. My intent is to make my images look as near to what I see in real life as possible.

25% of any sales from the show will go to Conservation Northwest – http://www.ConservationNW.org
