George Charman

George Charman studied sculpture at Farnham University before going on to complete his MA in 2008 in Fine Art at the Royal College of Art. His work explores the social constructs of architecture imbued in the process of making and its ability to act as a bridge between the mutable world and a space beyond what is here. The work plays with notions of aspiration and ideas of eternity as a state of mind; forever progressing in vain to an unknown point like negotiating your way through a mirrored maze that is constantly re-configuring itself. Although this journey is hopeless, it is not soul-less; in fact it is mans intelligence and skill in making things with their hands; and from their propensity for philosophical speculation, represented through the act of gazing, that enlivens our desire to move forward. read full statement
