2021 JUROR / Charles Ringer
Artist Charles Ringer says, “Art provides an opportunity to contemplate another person’s unique perspective on the physical, mental and spiritual environment in which we live.
“For as long as I can remember, I’ve been intrigued by the mechanics of life around me. At a young age, I began to arrange and assemble various objects in my environment into pleasing spaces and shapes. I found that I could translate my mental observations into the physical world. This process continues when the work is viewed by others, who transport it back to a mental state, completing a natural cycle.
“My work with metal involves many contrasts. The material itself is hard, but malleable, physically heavy, but visually delicate as a finished sculpture. Most of my work involves both a static and a kinetic presence, a whimsical as well as a serious nature.
“As an artist, being self-directed has been instrumental in developing my individual technique in this medium. The discipline of over 50 years of trial and error has proven to be my best education. “ Ringer’s work is in private and public collections throughout the country. His studio is in Joliet, MT.
