Each beautifully bold poster features the iconic minimal realism of Charley Harper. With images of woodpeckers, deer, shorebirds, snakes, butterflies, rabbits, and more, each illustration is much like an “I Spy” in its depth of detailed subject matter. Harper considered his artistic license to display and translate the beauty of nature as he noted, “Herein lies the lure of painting: In a world of chaos, the picture is one small rectangle in which the artist can create an ordered universe.”
Harper’s posters have been published by more than fifty nature- and conservation-oriented organizations, among them the Monteverde Cloud Forest Preserve (Costa Rica), the Cincinnati Zoo, Byrd Polar Research Center, Hawk Mountain Sanctuary in Pennsylvania, Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains National Monument, the Michigan Audubon Society, the Hamilton County (Ohio) Park District, the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument, the Edge of Appalachia Preserve, and the Wilderness Society. In each impressive image, Charley Harper’s love for wildlife and care for preservation shine through.
