George Charman’s work is informed by place. The projects he develops are in most cases referencing specific historical/geographical contexts (Artichoke House 2014, Lisbon Earthquake 2013), or in terms of his site-specific wall drawings and installations, responding to the architectonic structure of place (In These Countries Without Twilight 2013, Blind Spot 2015). A key reference for Charman when thinking about the material and cultural relationship between image and physical space is that of Roman wall painting. The shifting ideas relating to the depiction of illusionary intrusions into dimensional space, raises questions relating to how flatness, layering and surface can define the ontological actuality of something. Depending on which perspective is taken, the relational dynamics between things/people changes depending on the viewer.
