I think the whole language of chemicals will be understood in the plant world as well as animal world. Plants need to and do communicate! Thank you for the very multiple comment. Also the vf!!! Mushrooms are highly communicative.

Very, very interesting and complex work...visually as well as conceptually. An incredible description as well - (scientific) understanding of this kind of transmitters is very poor indeed....V/F

Thank you Sandra.It has had two more coats since this. Now it has a deeper luster. I'll repost it.

Very nice work here!!! v/f

Thank you Brenda and Oliver...had to work on this one!!!!

Amazing colors Charlie

with some trees a tree that is attacked by pests will release chemicals in the air to warn others to produce protective chemicals. this is definelty communicating. and if we knew how to listen imagine what we would hear. nice piece.

Thank you, Latha.

Beautiful color combination,Charlie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Artist's Description

It has always fascinated me how plants are aware of us. I have a small Russian olive tree which I talk to and it is thriving. Why this matters is because after my divorce started my last Russian olive died literally over a few days when I left my home. In a week it was totally dead. My son said he had to cut it down, it looked so ghastly. I am trying to get a grant to study these transmitters and their language syntax.

About Charlie Spear

Charlie Spear

Charlie Spear was born in 1948 in the Midwest. The era of Modern Art was in full swing with the Sixties generating an artistic smorgasbord of art styles and new media. Much of his early career was spent learning about art through teaching art in H.S. and College. His imagery grew out of early influences in television and graphic media. Spear paints both as a landscape painter and sometimes as an abstractionist which characterizes his ecclectic tendency. Exploring the art media's physical qualities is an important element in his style coupled with a love of an impressionistic drawing style. The result is a charged surface of automatic line energy and raw color expression. His work is a reflection of familiar events in his life...
