For Charles Wilkin collage as a medium replicates frenetic and inherent collision of people, culture, and emotions we all experience. He believes the true meaning of his work is derived directly from the intertwining of these associations, and the spontaneity of his creative process. This gives Wilkin’s work the freedom to live creatively in the moment, and the ability to respond to current events, despite his imagery being derived primarily from vintage magazines. He also loves to say that his work is a loose collection of thoughts and observations in many ways and less about one specific theme.
