Art is the output of musing calculations of the synaptic inner space.
Charles Schinner (circa: 1960, San Diego, United States) creates photographic and conceptual artworks. By applying abstraction, Schinner makes work that deals with documentation of everyday objects and the question of how they can be presented. The work tries to express this with the help of special optical utilization and technology, but not by telling a story or creating a metaphor.
Ever since He was in postgraduate studies, He has been fascinated by the endless oscillation of the mind. What starts out as yearning soon becomes corrupted into a hegemony of futility, leaving only a sense of nihilism and the prospect of a new order. As subtle derivatives become frozen through studious and diverse practice, the viewer is left with a clue to the inaccuracies of our culture
His images establish a link between the landscape’s reality and that imagined by its conceiver. These works focus on concrete questions that determine our existence. By exploring the concept of landscape in a technologically way, he creates intense personal moments masterfully created by means of rules and omissions, acceptance and refusal, luring the viewer round and round in circles.
His works most of the time do not reference recognizable forms. The results are deconstructed to the extent that meaning is shifted and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted. With a conceptual approach, he investigates the dynamics of landscape, including the manipulation of its effects and the limits of spectacle based on our assumptions of what landscape means to us. Rather than presenting a factual reality, an illusion is fabricated to conjure the realms of our imagination.
Charles currently lives and works out of Windsor, Colorado.
