CHARLES WILCOX paintings and sculptures for sale. From a young age, a hunter-gatherer ideology has influenced Charles Wilcox’s life and work, from free-diving for seafood to collecting driftwood and reinstating old junk to new glory.
“My sculptures are a reflection and representation of everything I love about the sea, adventure and travel. I hike, dive and explore the most rugged and remote coastlines of eastern Australia. Travelling as far as Cape York where I charter light aircraft to give me access to the most isolated beaches. I select materials that are shaped by the harsh elements of the environment to use in my artworks. Washed-up driftwood, flotsam and jetsam found by chance on secluded beaches that survives a journey across vast oceans, corrugated iron and other salvaged building materials scorched by sun and hammered by storms – I love it all. Featuring these items and their story in my art is a real motivator for me”.
