CHUCK AGRO, Cheeseburger in my big fat Greasy American Hands, presents a cast of familiar characters in this loose, graphic series of paintings and and drawings. Like Picasso and Lautrec, Chuck Agro observes and records the people of his life, thereby recording his life of friendships, desires and failures, building a community of experience. His people reveal the emotional gravitas of a human life, the frailty and complexity of a unique personality. They are candidly portrayed as sensitive, complicated, awkward or anxious. While Agro evokes the viewers’ empathy with his quirky crew, his wry caricature of them reinforces his own subjective appreciation for his “embarrassing, beautiful friends”.
