CHARLES PACHTER "DECISIONS DECISIONS" , 2012
Every artist has their muse. Queen Elizabeth is an icon/muse that Charles Pachter has repeatedly visited over the course of his career.
In "Decisions, Decisions", Pachter playfully presents the Queen in a moment of contemplation, pondering which hat to choose, or rather, which role to assume.
This moment illuminates the cheeky earnestness that runs throughout much of Pachter's portrait work; a perfect combination of reverence and humour.
While Pachter’s work shares some characteristics with Jim Dine and David Hockney, his style is resoundingly charming, singular and uniquely Canadian.
Pachter holds the prestigious position of Officer of the Order of Canada, and is also a recipient of the Queen’s Jubilee medal.
His work can be found in numerous private, corporate and institutional collections.
For new collectors Charles Pachter prints are an ideal choice for starting a collection of Canadian art.
