"Eye and mind"
He started his career as a scientific illustrator and research assistant with training in the
biological sciences. Through intrigue and experimentation, he has developed his own style of
digital fine-art with an emphasis on the organic and perceptual, in contrast to the technical
productions often associated with digital art. His work has been shown in the United States,
Australia, Europe, and Russia through selection into an elite group of digital artists by the 2002
International Digital Art Awards, the 2001 Seybold Seminars Digital Art Awards, and the
Macworld Digital Art Contest (years 1998, 1999, 2000, 2005). He is a featured artist in the book
"Secrets of Award Winning Digital Artists" published by Wiley Publishing in Sept 2002, as well
as a featured artist in Digital Fine Art Magazine and Digital Photography and Design Magazine.
Charles was recently commissioned by The Bronx Zoo for a series of illustrations Exhibit at
the New York Aquarium.
I look to suspend my work in a genesis of forms with a potential to unfold into various
levels of meaning over time. Each composition is a compiled depth of such meanings, as well
as simply an image to a more naive perception. In that regard I view my art as well as the
process as fundamentally an extension of that creative activity performed by the senses- for
sense perception does not merely copy a ready-made world, but rather, completes that world
by transforming the raw material it receives into a fully lived horizon.
