“Charles Wilcox is an artist, deisgner but above all an Australian adventurer. Before devoting himself to art, Wilcox operated survival courses and outdoor expeditions. The beauty of these pristine and remote places stimulated in him the curiosity towards the richness of shapes and colours that are given off by the wrecks of nature, leading him to collect natural materials and then assemble them in three dimensional compositions. Artistic sensitivity, adventurous spirit and craftsmanship give life to artworks that are imbued with energy of natural elements and translate his passion for the sea into an unusual visual and emotional union. Wilcox’s creativity does not end with the evocative assemblages but is regenerated in collages from vintage aesthetics where the new combination of images and colour once again betray the reference to the marine theme. A skilled hunter of images as well as objects, Wilcox restores the original bond between man and nature, capturing the beauty that escapes at first glance and reveals its expressive potential.”
