Next month, we are excited to welcome the works of Charles Wilkin to The Yard: Williamsburg! Come check out the imaginative, surreal pieces from his collection "Vapors" at our highly anticipated gallery opening on May 18th! We'll enjoy wine and light bites while we admire the wonderful juxtaposition of black and white with layers of vibrant color.
Charles Wilkin’s work is a loose collection of his thoughts and observations.
“I see it as being a reflection of the world we live in, with all its ugliness and cruelty. But from that, I strive to extract the beauty and empathy hidden underneath and within us all, revealing the unknown, the unspoken and intangible things that make us truly human. For me, collage as a medium replicates this frenetic and inherent collision of people, culture and emotions we all experience.” - Charles Wilkin.
Wilkin received his BFA at Columbus College of Art and Design. He currently splits his time between his studios in the Catskills and Brooklyn.
This exhibition is curated by Silence Is Accurate (SIA), an arts consultancy specializing in site-specific installation, neon and contemporary art.
