About Charles


Charles Printz is an American sculptor, painter, collagist and printmaker noted for his restless exploration of a range of media and mediums centered on equally expansive and universal themes concerning the grand narratives of the western tradition: mythology, history, culture, empire, and civilization. Printz’s protean working methodology frequently deals with a wide-range of art historical, biographical, literary and allegorical references and reveals a perspective inclined toward drama, spectacle and the sublime.

The visual field he seeks to create is a thing at once drawn together and split apart intended to invite a sudden immersive engagement. Printz echoes this fractured totality in his working process as themes disperse and reconstitute themselves. His practice can be summarized as a continual engagement with form to examine the relationship between figure-ground, object and landscape. Utilizing both innovative and traditional materials Printz seamlessly transitions between various modes of production, which often undulate between complex abstract figuration and multiform hybridized landscapes.
