Statement

Charles Printz is an American sculptor and painter noted for his restless exploration of a range of media and mediums centered on equally expansive and universal themes concerning the grand narratives of the western tradition: mythology, history, and empire.  Printz’s protean working methodology frequently deals with a wide-range of art historical, biographical, literary, filmic and allegorical references and reveals a perspective inclined toward drama, spectacle and the sublime.
