Eric D. Charlton
February 3rd - March 3rd 2014
Charlton' s work consists of primarily three-dimensional and four-dimensional constructs driven heavily by individual concept. Approaching ideas from a standpoint of the polar dualities of logic/madness, reality/romanticism, and solemnity/humor makes it possible to fabricate a thread of thematic similarities through his work that focus on different subject matter. With these considerations in mind, his systems comment on particular issues of social paradigms, philosophical inquires, and psychological concerns. Dealing with each piece as a distinct endeavor provides him with an opportunity to utilize a combination of media while dealing with specific design elements centered on the communication of the critical evaluation of the subject matter. Charlton's work coaxes the viewer to cultivate their inquisitive nature and step beyond the presuppositions of everyday life to contemplate an alternative to the common explanations or societal norms.
