Charles Hobbs has exhibited locally in Hastings, as well as Norwich University and selected London shows. Charles has recently completed his BA Hons Fine Art/Fine Art Practice, having begun his training a decade previously, working extensively & teaching in the intervening years.
Charles’ work shows his command of bold colours and his mastery of monochrome linear restraint. Of his recent work Charles says “I am interested in painting and process. Process is very important for me to organise and understand the contradictions in life. It allows me to get a glimpse of a different or unseen world. The start point for my current work has been the ontological existence and restorative qualities of the silver birch tree. I have been using grids in my work in an attempt to explore spatial and temporal aspects further and to engineer a tension between order and chaos.
Recently, I have been agitating paint on the surface and rotating the canvas as it dries to create a platform for washes and mediums to produce different translucent coats.”
