Charles Brindley (American/Tennessee, 20th-21st century), two graphite on paper Southern tree studies, both signed lower left, including one dated 1981 measuring 10" square (sight), 16 1/2" square (framed), and one dated 1984 measuring 17 1/2" x 13 1/4" (sheet), 23" x 18 1/2" (framed). Both matted under plexiglass in silver metallic frames. Artist biography (from artist's website): Charles Brindley lives and works north of Nashville, Tennessee. His work appears in public and corporate collections throughout the United States and in private collections internationally. Five touring exhibitions of Brindley's works have traveled to museums and art centers in the Southeast and Midwest. His subject matter generally encompasses trees, architecture, panoramic landscapes, rock formations, and mounds including Native American burial mounds. His images are highly representational but contain multi-layered abstract elements. In 1998 the Tennessee State Museum presented Landscape Vision: Works of Charles Brindley 1980-1997 and in 2007 the Evansville Museum organized an exhibit of his work spanning a twenty year period. "Far Hills: Images of the Tennessee Residence, " an exhibit of commissioned drawings and paintings of the historic mansion of Tennessee's Governors, completed a schedule of eight venues throughout the state in 2006.


Both in overall very good condition, not examined out of frame. Larger work has light toning and a 1" square area that is not toned, upper right sky area.
