Charles’s sculptural style encompasses, predominantly, Abstraction, Cubism and Surrealism. With wood as his favoured medium, he observes that;
“Wood invites tactile interaction and generally draws the observer to initiate direct contact with the sculpture. If I can make that connection happen …. happy days.”
Charles was born into an artistic family, his father, a highly commissioned portrait painter, was his principle influence. Charles studied Art at high school and later Surveying & Cartography, a field he subsequently took up a professional career in, which he practised internationally.
The diversity to his Art is a product of the confluence of his expertise with the natural and built environment and his empathic consideration of the intangible.
Charles was the Major Award Winner at Sculpture on The Edge, Maleny October 2017, with his piece “The Gate Post v2.0”.
Additionally, Charles is an accomplished & commissioned furniture maker. His design style and the quality of his work is best described as fine artisan furniture.
