Welcome to the official website of artist Chuck Connelly

An Expressionist without angst, Chuck Connelly paints with infectious exuberance. Mr. Connelly has a penchant for wild allegorical narratives, and there's a fine example in this exhibition, a picture of Noah's Ark breaking up in a storm with little animals spilling out everywhere, reflecting, perhaps, on the catastrophic events of last year. But the best parts of the exhibition are pictures having to do with the artist's recent move to Philadelphia. In these, headlong painterly urgency animates the homey facts of his new neighborhood: Victorian houses, jumbled backyards, verdant foliage and explosive flowers. A suite of four canvases extending over 20 feet across the wall, each filled edge to edge with leaves, vines, grass and weeds, is like a conference call among van Gogh, Soutine and Pollock. read more >>

His paintings have an undeniable stylistic verve and a darkly human sensibility. Connelly approaches his many subjects -- and his work encompasses the everyday and the surreal, the straightforward and the allegorical -- with an almost painful tenderness. Connelly’s paintings seem to emerge, as Zola said of Manet’s, from his own flesh and blood. - Walter Robinson, January, 2015
