Arthur Chartow gets the ideas for his paintings by traveling around, sometimes in his local neighborhood and sometimes hundreds or even thousands of miles from home. He takes lots of photographs and mostly works from them. But the artist states “I am not a Photorealist, so if the only thing people can see in a painting of mine is that it looks like a photograph, then I’ve failed. For me the photographic source is something to change, play with, add to, subtract from, translate, and transcend”.
