Connor Charlesworth

Photo of Connor CharlesworthBorn in Kelowna,BC, Canada, Connor Charlesworth grew up spending endless hours watching his father, well known artist Rod Charlesworth, paint. This nurtured an internal passion for object making and creating something out of nothing. As a kid growing up, he attended various exhibitions of The Group of Seven, to the Impressionists and Surrealists and found himself immersed in the culture and history of painting.

Connor is currently attending the University of British Columbia Okanagan for his bachelors degree, and has plans to obtain a masters degree abroad in painting. Attending university has provided Connor with the facilities necessary for print media including screen printing and lithography. The adoption of screen printing into his artistic practice has allowed him to synthesize both photographic and hand drawn imagery in to his work and ultimately, think about new, innovative ways to communicate ideas.

Connor’s recent paintings are an exploration of the physicality of places. This occurs either through a direct interaction with a place, or through photographic reference. The places he’s most interested in studying are ones which contain a certain psychological resonance that can be injected with a subconscious narrative that makes viewers question “whats going on here?”
