Artist's Statement

American artist Charles Printz is noted for his restless exploration of a range of media and mediums centered on expansive themes concerning the grand narratives of the western tradition: mythology, culture, empire, and civilization. He employs a phraseology derived from his interests in narrative, literature, biography, travel, history and art history. His works reveal a perspective inclined toward drama, spectacle and the sublime. As well, Printz’s protean working methodology frequently references and deals within the genres of landscape and history painting. The visual field he seeks to create is a thing at once drawn together and split apart intended to invite a sudden immersive engagement. As he constructs space he has in mind the nature of the cultural landscape, the many media, mediums and technologies used to simultaneously comment and deconstruct the objects of our conversations, stories, and myths.
