Charles Irvin

Charles Irvin’s practice taps into the power of both elemental and symbolic imagery, and encompasses painting, drawing, performance, video and sculpture. The artist is an avid surfer, hiker, yogi and meditator, and he draws inspiration from experiences of being alone in nature—such as watching an ocean sunset or meditating deep in a forest. Irvin’s paintings employ brightly colored oil paint in compositions that combine humor with a heavy dose of mystical sci-fi.
