CHARITY ALGARME

My artwork is concerned with the exploration of materiality, through the lens of

phenomenology. As a result, the materials I use can be highly varied, and are chosen for their ability to strike parallels between the material world and the psychological realm. Issues concerning the perception of culture and time feature prominently in the work. Because the human body acts as a physical marker of time, the artwork consistently references the body itself, or the spaces it occupies. As a native Californian, I am particularly interested in my own “backyard”, but also the context within which it sits in the global scene.  As we continue the thread of one surreal year into another, I currently find myself making artwork that seeks to record the unique voids and circumstances created by these extraordinary times.
