Charlie Evaristo-Boyce

Charlie Evaristo-Boyce is a British artist who is based in the British seaside town of Margate. Over the past 4 years he has curated and ran ‘ Margate’s Most Medium Sized Gallery’ his own gallery which exhibits prints and original artworks. Charlie studied Fine Art at UCA Farnham where he became familiar with silkscreen printing. Charlie has exhibited in and around London recently took part in a group show in Brussels. He has worked as a workshop coordinator at establishments like The Royal Academy, Turner Contemporary and Printworks London.

My work explores found imagery, I take images that already exist in the world and I fragment, enlarge, manipulate and multiply them through silkscreen printing. As well as producing traditional paper prints I also like to push the printmaking process to its limits and combine printmaking with sculpture and painting. I like to think big and create large scale artworks out of lots of little individual prints. I have built a 14,000 ft² surreal city out of handprinted cardboard boxes and made billboard sized artworks out of hundreds of individual screenprinted sections.

I also produce canvases where i experiment with different techniques that cross the mediums. I have recently been exploring a process called ‘over painting’ where washes of paint are applied to already printed surfaces.

My recent artworks explore my Nigerian heritage though portraits of my ancestors. Old photographs are brought back to life and enlarged creating powerful windows into my past.

I incorporate objects relevant to my current surroundings to frame and enhance my paintings. Some of my paintings are framed using vintage fairground architecture, which is directly inspired by Margate’s a rich history of funfairs.

Charlie Evaristo-Boyce 是一位來自英國的藝術家,現居於英國一個名叫馬蓋特的海邊小鎮。過去4年,他管理及經營「馬蓋特中型畫廊」是他的自家畫廊,主要展覽印刷品及原作。Charlie 曾在英國創意藝術大學(Farnham)校區學習美術,亦是在這裡他能純熟運用絲印技巧。Charlie的作品在倫敦及附近城市都曾參加展覽,就像最近他的作品在比利時布魯塞爾展出。他曾於各大機構如英國皇家學院、Turner Contemporary文藝畫廊及倫敦Printworks 表演及展覽廳擔任工作坊協調員。

我的作品探索的是發現影像。我多以存在世界的萬物作為創作對象,然後我以絲印的手法將它們打散、放大、重新調配或做成多重影像。我亦會以傳統的印刷方法製作,我很喜歡將印刷的過程推至本極限以及將印刷融合雕像與繪畫當中。我喜歡想得很大和以獨立而細小的印刷創作大面積的設計。我以手繪的紙箱建立了一個14,000平方呎的超現實城市,同時我亦以百多個絲印作品創作了一個戶外宣傳版那麼大的作品。

我也會以帆布創作,以這種方式我可以用不同的技術或跨媒介為我的創作進行實驗。我最近在探索一種稱為「多重繪畫法」——以塗抹方式將顏料塗在已油好的表面。

我最近的作品是透過我祖先的肖像探索我尼日利亞血統的承襲。舊照片被賦予生命,亦為我的過去帶來了更大的創作力。我將自己周圍的事物融入及增強我的畫作。我的一些創作會以復古市集建築為題材,靈感直接取自馬蓋特豐富的市集歷史。
