Charles Gick’s art explores intersections between memory, the body, emotions, and sensory experiences shared with the natural environment. His work is affected by the phenomenal and ephemeral qualities found in the environment—the passing of a cloud, a violent storm, the heat of summer, or the cracking earth on the dried up belly of a pond. Gick’s installations combine earth art, process, video, photography and found objects to express personal and collective memory, loss and physicality. In Drought Table, mud has been left to dry on a dining room table, creating a network of deep fissures. Across the table a “conversation” of vocal chords takes place, as a man in a vast farm landscape attempts communication with a woman framed in an urban environment.
